Approximate working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; however, Reclamation could begin increasing flows back to 4,500 cfs as early as 1 p.m., on Thursday. If additional work is required, lower maintenance flows could extend into Friday, August 10. Please note that increasing the flows in the lower American River to 4,500 will cause a rise of approximately 2 ½ feet.
Recreationists on or along the lower American River are advised to exercise caution due to cold river temperatures and variable flow conditions.
Daily information on expected flows in the American River can be found on the California Data Exchange Center website at http://cdec.water.ca.gov./queryRes.html or on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website at http://www.spk-wc.usace.army.mil/generic/rel_rep_s.html .
