Navajo Release Change Scheduled

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASES
January 22, 2013

SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL


As a result of increased river flows in the San Juan River Basin, the Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled a decrease in the release from Navajo Reservoir from 350 to 250 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 beginning at 7:00 a.m. 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].

Well any increase is good news for us. However, that powerpoint from mid-January made this year's upcoming flow look grim.
