Lake Powell 2010 projected releases

It took awhile, but I found the BuRec most probable releases for Lake Powell at

To get approximate average daily releases in cfs, divide "Total Release" (1000 acre-feet) for the month by 60.

April through June 2010 are projected to release 600,000 acre-feet each month, works out to 10,000 cfs average release, or the daily 8-12,000 cfs.

I am on a May 26 launch, would rather the 806,000 projected for July 2010, that will be 10-15k.

These numbers can change, usually near the end of the month prior, based on inflows, etc.

In life, pain is unavoidable, suffering is optional.

1.983471075 acre-feet per day = 1 cfs Scary, but I have that number memorized.

New forecasts are issued twice a month (beginning and mid month), but I don't think the region folks change their operation plan that often. Equalization (more release to Mead) looks very unlikely this year (<5% chance), so what you see is likely what you'll get.
