BUREAU OF RECLAMATION

NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASE

October 19, 2009



The Bureau of Reclamation will be decreasing the release from Navajo Reservoir to 500 cubic feet per second (cfs) tomorrow, Tuesday, October 20, 2009, at 9:00 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.



Pending significant changes in the weather and stream flow conditions, the release will likely remain at 500 cfs until next spring (2010). If you have any questions, please contact Pat Page at (970) 385-6560 or e-mail him at [email protected].
