Navajo Release Change



April 17, 2013


As a result of decreased river flows in the San Juan River Basin, the Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled an increase in the release from Navajo Reservoir from 500 to 650 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Thursday, April 18th beginning at 8:00 a.m. Releases are made for the authorized purposes of the Navajo Unit, and to attempt to maintain a target base flow through the endangered fish critical habitat reach of the San Juan River (Farmington to Lake Powell).

The San Juan River Basin Recovery Implementation Program recommends a target base flow of between 500 cfs and 1,000 cfs through the critical habitat area. The target base flow is calculated as the weekly average of gaged flows throughout the critical habitat area.

This scheduled release change is subject to changes in river flows and weather conditions. If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Christianson at 970-385-6590 or e-mail him at

increased release for san juan

Good news from the bureau of reclamation, increased flows for the San Juan Riv to begin Thursday April 18th. That will help the endangered fish (not to mention the endangered boater). Yippy Skippy.
