    Monitoring Notes
    April 26, 2006 monitoring at three reestablishment sites confirmed successful reestablishment of topminnow at all three sites and pupfish at 2 of 3 sites. Observations in November 2006 confirmed fish present at all three sites.
    Additional Notes
    Water quality data on sites were also collected at these three sites. Presence of these species confirms the viability of these sites at the upper elevational range of these species. Supplimental stockings are being persued to improve genetic vialbility and an additional site is being evaluated. MAT 7/1/07
