The increased flows will help prevent the reservoir from filling too rapidly, thus decreasing the risk of high flows later in the runoff season. Downstream flow rates between Owyhee Dam and the Snake River will fluctuate to sustain the necessary reservoir storage requirements. The higher flows are expected to occur during the next few weeks until appropriate space has been made available.
