River releases to drop to minimums

With inflows dropping off significantly to around 2,000cfs, and with the Bighorn Canal still flowing at capacity, Reclamation feels it is necessary to reduce flows to minimums (2,500cfs). Currently, the lake elevation is just a little bit more than three feet below below full pool, and river releases are at 3,000cfs. This reduction confirms that Reclamation plans to continue to operate under the 20 foot window.On Wednesday at 4pm, flows will drop from 3,000cfs to 2,750cfs.On Thursday at 4pm, flows will drop from 2,750cfs to 2,500cfs.
