Or if the San Miguel wasn't running during the designated dates then they would release water out of McPhee so the target flow would be 900cfs. Can anybody clarify this?
^This was what I was getting at. The language in the announcement seems to focus on the confluence not the upper stretch. Curious how that plays out historically as I haven't spent much time looking the flow data. Does the San Miguel normally release 900 cfs within the designated timeframe? If not, will the supplemental flow out of McPhee be enough for recreation?
The one thing that seems clear is the ecological picture is likely going to be much healthier.
