Navajo Reservoir Release Changes

I'm going to keep all the Navajo Reservoir release changes in this one thread now, so as to not continually be creating new threads....

Decreasing our release to 650 cfs tomorrow morning (Friday) at 4am, since the Animas is starting to come back up from rain. You can expect ~450-550 cfs down in the rafting reach coming up, more if there are local storms.

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASES

SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL
July 21, 2016


As a result of increasing river flows and a forecast wet weather pattern in the San Juan River Basin, the Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled a decrease in the release from Navajo Reservoir from 800 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 650 cfs on Friday, July 22nd starting at 4:00 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 Susan Behery at 970-385-6560 or sbehery@usbr.gov.
