LSB I wouldn't say that... In the article it says that there are 8 pumps, 2 with a capacity of 14 cfs, 2 with a capacity of 28 cfs, and 4 with a capacity of 56 cfs. So the most they could draw out is 308 cfs. AND, it seems like they would be using the full capacity of the pumps.
"The first fill will take 18 months to three years, depending on such factors as the flow in the Animas, the demand of senior water-right holders downstream, the amount of water needed for environmental commitments in the Animas and the capacity of the pumping station, Longwell said.
Eight pumps - two each with a capacity of 14 and 28 cubic feet of water per second, respectively, and four with 56 cfs capacity - will be used. A cubic foot of water per second will produce nearly 2 acre-feet in 24 hours.
In a nutshell, the A-LP, as it's known, consists of the reservoir (120,000-acre-foot Lake Nighthorse), the pumping station and a pipeline connecting the two as well as facilities in New Mexico for partners there, including the Navajo Nation."
