Navajo Release Change Scheduled

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASE
February 7, 2013

SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL


The Bureau of Reclamation will be decreasing the release from Navajo Reservoir from 350 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 250 cfs on Monday, February 11, 2013 at approximately 7:00 am. This temporary, lower release is made in collaboration with the San Juan River Basin Recovery Implementation Program (SJRIP) for a project taking place at the PNM diversion dam. The SJRIP has requested this temporary decrease in the release and temporary suspension of the target base flow in order to complete this project. The release will be increased as required to resume meeting downstream target base flows starting at 7:00 am on Friday, February 15th, 2013. This scheduled increase may change, or be reduced, depending on river conditions. 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).


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].

Ryan or Susan: It's now April 10, 2013. What is the flow out of Navajo Dam now? And is there any plan to increase it in the next two weeks? I have a permit for the San Juan R at Sand Island on April 22nd, and am wondering if the flow is likely to be above the present 500 cfs. Thanks, Joe Griffith, Durango.

Joe-
The release from Navajo is currently at 500cfs. We have no plans for an increase right now. As soon as the Animas starts coming up, we'll probably actually do a decrease from the reservoir to save water. The flows at Bluff will probably remain similar to what they are now until the runoff season really gets going.
