Today on the Fry-Ark Project we have started to wrap up exchanges against native inflows. Additionally, we are starting to see run-off inflows increase into Twin Lakes. As a result, we will be ramping up releases from Twin Lakes to Lake Creek over the next 36 hours. The anticipated schedule for increases to releases is as follows:
Today, June 10, 3 p.m.: 270 cfs, bringing total release to about 290 cfs.
At 8 p.m. we will add another 250, bringing the total release to around 540 cfs.
Tomorrow, June 11, at 7 a.m. we will increase a third time by 250 cfs bringing the total release to Lake Creek to 790 cfs.
Depending on run-off conditions, we might add a fourth increase later in the afternoon on June 11. I will keep you posted.
