Thanks for the graphs as it is good to hear all perspectives.
Here are the flow graphs first in 2012 when releasing so much water before anyone knows what the snowpack is resulted in.
The only time it got above 475 in the summer of 2012 or what the river is running right now was due to rain.
In 2013 I was part of the discussion where the flow target was reduced.. What happened is we saw a great monsoon season or we would have seen below 600 at wellsville from July 1st on.
So I have to disagree that the VFP delivered the 700 cfs as VFP water was not the reason for the targeted flows in 12 or 13. Rather is was folks like Kara doing what ever they could to get us as close as possible.
Gretch have you had time to talk with Mr Rasumssin about why TU is requesting that the CPW/AHRA totally ban boating on sections of the Ark? I have to disagree with you that "this wont fly" or the CPW is looking at shutting down section this is a fact. You said earlier you would contact him so please report your findings. Until then could you please state facts and not innuendo as I look forward to what you find out about what Mr Rasumssin as well as TU's position is and the reason for it.
