Homestake parameters

What are the paramaters for Homestake in terms of low, med, and high flow? E-phlows has it in the red when it's obviously good to go.

Ran it a month ago somewhere undeer 50 cfs. It was probably 45ish. I heard they ran the Teva race last year when it was somewhere in the 20s. So it should definitely go at this level.

For anyone who knows, I'm curious about what levels it starts to get scary, i.e. when do the pools wash out and the drops get some kick below them?

22 cfs was the level for last years teva games, so i assume you could do it that low!

It has been run all the way down to 22 cfs as mentioned. The only reason was it was for the race and it was do it at that level or cancel. So we ran it. Doable but not that much fun. 45 cfs is about the bottom of the barrel when we start to hit it. It gets fun at about 65 cfs. I have done it all the way up to 300. Really good then! POS looks crazy at that level. The rest is great fast and very clean. Hope that helps.
