Navajo Release Change

July 17, 2013


As a result of increasing flows in the San Juan River Basin, and a continued cooler, wetter weather pattern, the Bureau of Reclamation will be decreasing the release from Navajo Reservoir from 800 cfs (cubic feet per second) to 500 cfs on Thursday, July 18th, beginning at 7:00 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

San Juan

Four corners area must be getting rain.
The guage upstream of the San Juan run in NM reads almost 3000 cfs now.
Makes for a nice trip this week, but maybe a muddy slime-zone on the beaches when it drops off.
