Released On: September 02, 2011
Reclamation is lowering the flow to enable a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service contractor to excavate an opening in the riverbank for water to flow into a firebreak canal in Topock Marsh, located approximately 30 miles downstream from Davis Dam.
Beginning at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time on September 12 and continuing until Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., releases from Davis Dam, which can range up to approximately 23,000 cfs during the day, will lower to a steady flow of approximately 4,600 cfs.
River flows will return to normal levels the evening of September 13 unless additional time is needed to complete the Topock Marsh project.
For further information on the river’s status, daily and hourly information on releases from Reclamation's Colorado River dams is available http://www.usbr.gov/lc/riverops.html, or contact the Water Operations Control Center at: 702-293-8373, or by e-mail at: Waterops@usbr.gov.
