Salt Lake City, Utah
Released On: September 20, 2010
At Taylor Park Dam, releases will periodically be reduced to 25 cubic-feet-per-second for safety and visibility reasons for the dive team. Experience from similar inspections in 1993, 1999, and 2004 showed that releases can be reduced for no longer than 15 minutes to protect the Taylor River fishery. Divers will limit dive time to 15 minutes or less, and the river downstream from the dam will be monitored during the dive. If impacts to the fishery develop during monitoring, the dive will be terminated. Colorado Division of Wildlife will participate in monitoring and water users and fishery contacts have been notified.
At Silver Jack Dam downstream flows will not be affected during the dive.
