Glen Canyon Dam Operation

The purpose of this notification is to confirm that the release volume from Glen Canyon Dam for February 2012 will be 650,000 acre-feet. Hourly and daily average releases from Glen Canyon Dam for February 2012 will be scheduled through Western Area Power Administration to be consistent with the Glen Canyon Dam Operating Criteria (Federal Register, Volume 62, No. 41, March 3, 1997) and to also achieve, as nearly as is practicable, this monthly volume.

Hourly releases during February 2012 are anticipated to peak in the afternoon to approximately 13,000 cfs with early morning hourly low releases of approximately 7,000 cfs.

We anticipate the release volume for March 2012 will be 600,000 acre-feet. This will be confirmed in a subsequent notification toward the end of February.

This notification supersedes all previously issued notifications and is current until a new notification is issued. All times identified in this notification are local time (Mountain Standard Time) and not hour ending.

If there are any concerns or questions regarding these operations, I can be reached at 801-524-3710.
