Timing of the release is to coincide with the peak on the Animas at Farmington. Peak flow forecasts can be found on the CBRFC website: CBRFC Conditions Map
This year will be a difficult year to predict the peak, since a lot of the snowpack is gone. The peak will be highly temperature dependent, and could occur at just about anytime between now and the end of June. My indications are around the 3rd week in June.
The amount of the release is based on the Flow Recommendations set forth by the San Juan River Basin Recovery Implementation Program. They may have the criteria on their website.
