High Volume Release for GC


While it doesn't explicitly say it's been approved, the following USGS page

USGS Release: Media Advisory: Opening of Glen Canyon Damís Jet Tubes for High-Flow Experiment (2/25/2008 3:38:31 PM)

surely seems to indicate it's going to happen, since they're inviting folks to watch the release start on March 5th.

I didn't see any mention of how much or how long. I 'll admit to only a quick skim of the linked article.

Hi Dave,

You didn't miss anything -- the article doesn't mention how long.

It's going to be 41,000 cfs, March 5-9. The Park has posted this

Grand Canyon National Park - Potential 2008 High Flow Permit Info. (U.S. National Park Service)

as well, for folks who will be on the river at that time.

Hope this helps.
