Miker The 4 tubes(Pinstocks 5kcfs each) were designed for spill in big years. 28k is the maximun flow thru the generators if all are working. I beleive they usally have one down for maintence hence the summer highs around 24 to 25k when the lake is full or near full.

Jen I belive the intakes are a little over half way down in the 200 ft range. No sediment yet that far down the lake.

The short time the tubes are open will have little effect on the lake. sj

Thanks sj, that really sucks though. It will redistribute what's already in the canyon but won't add to the sediment load. Damn Dam anyway, I should never have read Desert Solitaire, makes me mad.

LOL ignorance is bliss sometimes. However on the bright side the Paria river dumps alot of sediment in as does the little C. I went the year after they did the first Flood experiment and the beaches below the little C were absolutly Huge. sj
