Micheal Byrd and Bob Shea install new equipment.
Michael Byrd, director of the Prescott Creeks Preservation Association, said Shea's contribution to the riparian preserve has been fantastic for gaining knowledge about the water levels.
"We've had problems getting volunteers out on a regular basis," Byrd said.
The past volunteers would often get trained, come out only periodically and quit.But, Byrd said Shea has been great about coming out at least once a week to get readings.
Byrd said when grant funds from the state come in that PCPA will purchase some of the PT2X smart censors as long as the demo model works.
Byrd is grateful that Shea knew what type of device to get.
"We've had problems with machines breaking down, so Bob has been guiding us with the equipment so we could get better data," Byrd said.
Byrd said one of the concerns at Watson Woods Riparian Preserve is the shape of the land.
He said the channels have been altered over the years, mostly due to the sand and gravel operations.
"We want to get the channels and landscape back to function," he said.
Byrd explained that when the channels properly flood out that the cottonwoods and willows are healthier.He said engineers will have to work on this project in the future.

Michael Byrd
Michael Byrd Executive Director Preserve Manager
Michael Byrd has been with Prescott Creeks since 1995.
In 2003 the Board of Directors promoted Michael to Executive Director. While maintaining his Preserve Management duties, Michael has built the organization's capacity to respond to community requests for improved riparian habitat, clean water and opportunities for hands-on involvement.
In December of 2007, Mayor Jack Wilson appointed Michael as Co-Chair of the City of Prescott's Open Space Acquisition Advisory Committee which has focused much of it efforts on open space properties featuring riparian habitat in the Granite Dells area of Prescott.
When not working or playing on a creek or river, you might find Michael outside, and off the beaten-path, with his canine sidekick " Post."
Post claims Executive Director and Preserve Manager Michael Byrd as his human. He came to Michael and Prescott Creeks from the downtown Post Office. Shortly after arriving, he appointed himself as the official greeter at the Prescott Creeks office. While he has not been very forthcoming about his background or previous experience, he is diligent with his professional responsibilities. If you happen by the office when Post is not working, it's likely that he's at home chasing his kitty or canvassing the neighborhood for treats with his canine pals.
