Subject: Aspinall Unit Release Notification
I haven't seen this posted here yet. Planning to be on the lower Gunnison this weekend and not certain if anyone knows what this might mean. Guess we will find out! See press release below:
Flows in the Black Canyon will increase to 800 cfs today, followed by 500 cfs/day increases until Crystal Reservoir begins spilling. Crystal is expected to start spilling by next Thursday, May 29. After that releases will increase until the peak flow level is reached on June 2. At this time flows in the Black Canyon are expected to approach 9,000 cfs.
