"One objective of this operation is to approach 20,000 cfs at the gage near Heise, approximately 48 river miles downstream of Palisades," said Roland Springer, Assistant Area Manager for Reclamation's Upper Snake Field Officel. "Providing high flows at the same time that nature would provide them benefits native fish."
These water releases will not affect Reclamation's ability to meet its water delivery obligations. American Falls Reservoir will store the water that is passed through Palisades Reservoir to be used farther downstream.
The river will be fast and cold during the high flow period. Please use caution and be aware when recreating near the river.
