Hey guys just an update on releases forecast for this spring. Looks like the Animas is going to be pumping out some pretty good water over the spring, and helping refill most area reservoirs while providing some great boating down on the San Juan.
We're planning to do a short release from Navajo Dam, and it will be timed to coincide with the Animas River peak, which will most likely be end-of-May or early June. The whole release won't be very long, all-in-all about 2-weeks, with 5 days at 5,000 cfs, but if we time it right you could have 10kcfs or greater down near Bluff.
I'll be posting updates at the link below as soon as we have a date set. Call or email me if you have questions.
