Big South Gate and Flow Update
Just got off the phone with the forest service and the lady said that the gate will be open of Friday sometime in the morning. I asked if she was certain that it would be open and she said yes. Game on for Big South boaters!
Also I spoke with Jim who is the guy who runs the water operations of long draw reservoir for Water Supply and Storage Co. Jim confirmed that long draw is full and that natural flow coming into the res is spilling. Jim noted that his current plans for releases are to release about 250 cfs until september! Wow! He thought that there was enough water in the res to keep it at those levels for the entire month of August. Awesome! He noted that he may wait a bit for natural flow to come down before he bumps it up to 250, and noted that it may vary by 20-30 cfs around that number.
Anyway, looks like its going to be a great big south season!!!!
