Gayle Ciardi, a watershed keeper for the San Francisco Public Utilities District, was the first woman to hold that post. Here, she presides over a herd of goats that help control flammable brush.

Gayle Ciardi grew up living just south of San Francisco in a 23,000-acre wilderness, where Crystal Springs and adjacent reservoirs along Highway 280 hold drinking water for 2.4 million people. As a fourth-generation watershed keeper, Ciardi helps protect the reservoirs and the land around them. She traveled for years with her father in his truck, checking meters, confronting trespassers, and learning about all the local wildlife. When she applied for the job herself in 1982, she was told there were no women watershed keepers. But she persisted, eventually convincing the managers at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) that she could do the job.

GC: Our main job is reservoir security and in the summer, fire safety. On a normal morning, I’ll measure the flow and pressure in the big pipes—several million gallons a day—that come down from Hetch Hetchy in the Sierra. I also check the lakes for depth. In terms of routine patrol, we look for trespassers; the sensitive areas of the watershed are mostly closed to the public. Public trails along the edges of the watershed are maintained by San Mateo County Parks. This is also a state fish and game refuge. So my job also includes keeping the wild animals safe and happy.

As the rancor approached Skywalker, the cornered Jedi picked up a skull , and he used the Force to propel it toward the gate's utility panel. The bone smashed the button, causing the panel to short-circuit and release the gate down upon the rancor's head, crushing the beast's skull. [13] Shocked, [9] Malakili opened the door, rushed to Pateesa's side, and wept upon seeing he was dead. Whimpering, Malakili turned away from the fallen beast, placing an arm around Giran for comfort. [3]

Feeling purposeless without Pateesa and his other creatures, Malakili set out toward the Great Pit of Carkoon, creating an ultimatum for himself: successfully tame the sarlacc, or commit suicide by throwing himself into the monster's mouth . When Malakili reached the sarlacc, he found it was injured; the Khetanna ' s destruction had sent burning wreckage onto the creature, partially exposing its massive body from the sand, and Jawas had slit open its stoma-tubes to scavenge weapons, armor , droids , and tools. Upon seeing the sarlacc wailing, unable to fend off pillagers and deprived of its sole purpose, Malakili empathized with the creature and wept. [4]

Some time after the skirmish, Malakili was reunited with Porcellus , the former head chef of Jabba's Palace. The two became business partners, and they eventually traveled to Mos Eisley , where they opened the Crystal Moon Restaurant . [5]

|I ii AUTOMATIC WATER LEVEL KEEPER FOR SWIMMING POOLS The invention relates to improvements in devices for establishing and maintaining the desired water level in swimming pools.

The prior art as well as the market place are replete with devices for monitoring and controlling the water level in swimming pools. So far as is known, however, the desired water level in the pool has heretofore been established by adjusting a float valve to operate at a given height. In order to provide this type of adjustment, the float valves previously used have been somewhat expensive and have required at least a moderate degree of mechanical aptitude to effect re-setting.

It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a water level keeper in which the float valve requires no adjustment in order to maintain the water level in a swimming pool at the desired height.
