"We have been working hard with stakeholders through the Bighorn River System Issues Group during the past couple of years to improve our ability to meet competing demands on Yellowtail Dam and Reservoir", said Dan Jewell, Area Manager for Reclamation's Montana Area Office. "Most folks recognize that available water supply is the key variable, and our storage conditions are about as good as you can get for this time of year. If conditions hold, we can provide strong fall and winter releases to the Bighorn River and still meet our reservoir targets this coming spring and summer," Jewell said. "However, there are no guarantees in this business and at this point we're at the mercy of the weather for the next several months."
