Hasn't happened in years. It used to run for an hour or 2 around 5 or 6 pm. I used to go all the time my first couple seasons boating. Releases were only 150- 175 cfs, but it was fun. Ran it from 4 mile under the full moon on Christmas eve in 96 or 97. New years eve was always a big hit too.
There has been pipeline construction right by the power plant. I wonder if the plant is getting an upgrade and there may be power releases again in years to come.
Anyone know what is really happening with the pipe? Looks like a new line went in from betasso water treatment (and hydro) plant down to the creek right near the old public service plant. It has me wondering if the water will go into new turbines at the old plant location for a second round of power. If this is the case it would mean more releases to Boulder Creek.
