Boulder City, Nev.
Released On: February 14, 2008
Beginning at 6 p.m. (Mountain Time) on February 16, releases from Parker Dam, located north of Parker, Arizona, will be reduced to approximately 5,400 cubic feet per second (cfs). This flow level is expected to continue until noon on February 17. At that time, the releases will return to an average of approximately 9,200 cfs.
The reduced water flows will result in an approximately 6-inch drop in water levels below Parker Dam during this period. Water deliveries to downstream users will not be affected by this change in operations.
The releases are required to allow the Western Area Power Administration to conduct a test on Parker Dam powerplant and switchyard.
