Navajo Reservoir Release Oct 1, 2009

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION

NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASE

September 30, 2009

As a result of minimal stream flow improvements from the current storm thatís currently blowing through the area, the Bureau of Reclamation will be increasing the release from Navajo Reservoir from 600 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 750 cfs tomorrow, Thursday, October 1, 2009, at 4:00 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, therefore daily flows of less than 500 cfs may occur at some gages.

This scheduled release change is subject to changes in river flows and weather conditions. Reclamation will continue to closely monitor weather and stream flow conditions and make adjustments to the Navajo Reservoir release as necessary. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Page at (970) 385-6560.
