Shoshone Power Plant / Barrel Springs

Does anyone have any info about scheduled maintenance on the Shoshone Power Plant in Glenwood Canyon?

My understanding is they do scheduled annual maintenance in the fall.
If either or both turbines are turned off, there will be enough water to run Barrel Springs.

Any idea who to call for info?

Thanks

No info, but if you find out, please post. I regularly find out at the putin when I notice there is enough water coming down to be worth the hike or when I drive past on the way to Gore.

Well, Shoshone Power Plant is down for some unknown reason.
All 1700 cfs is in Barrell Springs.
Unknown how long this situation will last.

I can't get over there until Sunday, any reports would be good.
Any catboaters that want to run Sunday or Monday, send me a PM.
Or call 3zero3-589-3zero21 Richard

Get it while its running!

From Division 5: "The Shoshone Power Plant is not operational at this time and there is not a definitive timetable for the power plant to come back on-line."

Not sure if construction/canyon shutdown would have any reason for it.... Flying in stuff for rockslide mitigation today and tomorrow.

I'm a water rights engineer who does a fair bit of work in Div 5, so I'm key'd in.

I'm not a cat boater, but I am a rafter and kayaker. Everything below upper death looked good to go. Upper death had a very precise line that was more than I want to take on. I just happened to be biking by it today. That being said, I think the rest of run is class v but doable by cat boaters.
