Released On: April 19, 2011
The flow releases will begin increasing on April 22, 2011, reaching a peak release of 11,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) on May 4. These peak flows will be held for a period of three days and then decreased to 4,500 cfs by May 9. After that date, releases will be gradually decreased to a 450 cfs summer base-flow on August 1. Near the end of August, there will be a moderate increase in releases for about a week for Native American ceremonial purposes.
The public should take appropriate safety precautions whenever river flows are high. Landowners are advised to clear personal items and debris from the floodplain prior to the releases.
