Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks

Potter/Derby Creeks Watershed

The Potter Creek & Derby Creek Watershed includes:
No named tributaries

Except for a small stretch on the Clark Kerr Campus, the stream channel of these two creeks have been completely filled-in; they are replaced by one strom drain network. The water, however, still flows. During wet winters, springs erupt in basements of buildings such as the Julia Morgan Theater. The water flows out, over the curb, and down the stormdrain.
