Released On: October 11, 2013
The higher releases are necessary to meet the fall fishery pulse flow requirements according to the National Marine Fisheries Service Biological Opinion.
People recreating in or along the Stanislaus River downstream from Goodwin Dam to the confluence of the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Rivers should take appropriate safety precautions with the increased flows. Particular attention is drawn to the sharp increase from 450 to 2,000 cfs on October 23. Goodwin Dam is located downstream from Tulloch Dam and New Melones Dam and Reservoir, features of the Central Valley Project.
