Global warming = drought = no water in the creek

This may have to do with the 101 work over Matadero Creek.
The creek east of the bridge is very high due to the tide gate problems described here yesterday. However, at the bridge new pipe is being installed for 101 and a large pump has been installed to drain water into the sewer system.
It can all be seen just north of the MSC on East Bayshore.
Could this also be why the Palo Alto creek monitor has been broken since April 27th?
As a backup, NOAA has a new tide station on Coyote Creek. It is producing excellent tidal data for the south bay.
