The National Park Service (NPS) at Yosemite National Park is working with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), and the Center for Collaborative Policy at Sacramento State University to complete a scientific study on the hydrology of the Merced River in the vicinity of the historic Sugar Pine Bridge. The intent of this study is to provide information to stakeholders and decision-makers, including information on design of treatments to improve river conditions while retaining the historic bridge.
