Navajo Release Decrease - Revised

(Please note the revised release amount since the press release Friday- due to changes in the weather and streamflow forecasts, the release will be reduced from 1000 cfs to 800 cfs, not 650 cfs.)

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASE
July 9, 2012
SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL

As a result of forecasted increased streamflow in the San Juan River Basin due to cooler, wetter weather conditions, the Bureau of Reclamation will be decreasing the release from Navajo Reservoir from 1000 to 800 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Monday, July 9, 2012 at approximately 9 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].
