Site Description

The Pixley Wildlife Refuge pump site is located approximately three miles east of highway 41 on Road 88.  The location is easily accessible with minimal traffic on Road 88.  Power is readily available at the pump, although it is 440 VAC, 3-phase, 60 hz, so minimal effort would be required to convert the power to 110 VAC.  Power at the site is funded by the Central Valley Project Improvement Act.  Security does not seen to be a problem, which was verified by Mr. David Hardt, Project Leader for the Kern National Wildlife Refuge Complex.  The site has a 360 exposure and is surrounded on all sides by undisturbed property.  The water fowl area, approximately mile to the west is flooded between August and March.  A poultry ranch and dairy are located approximately one mile north and 1 mile west of the site, respectively.  There were no signs of vandalism or suspicious activities at the site.

The site would require a power transformer and mounting brackets for the sampling equipment.  The brackets could be attached to the power pole.  There is a turn-out at the site which would provide the operator safe access to park and to perform the filter changes and data retrieval activities.
