Navajo Release Change

Apologies for the last-minute notice of today's increase. Please call with any questions you have.

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASES
June 17, 2013


SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL


As a result of decreasing tributary inflows into the San Juan River, along with a hot and dry forecast, the Bureau of Reclamation will be increasing the release from Navajo Reservoir from 500 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 650 cfs on Monday, June 17th, beginning at 10:00 am, and from 650 cfs to 800 cfs on Tuesday, June 18th, beginning at 8:00 am. 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 Ryan Christianson at 970- 385-6590 or e-mail him at [email protected].
