https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62691 Yakima Basin Water Supply - July Forecast
YAKIMA, Wash. – The Bureau of Reclamation’s July 2018 Total Water Supply Available (TWSA) forecast for the Yakima basin indicates a full water supply for senior and junior water rights this irrigation season. This is an improvement for the junior users whose entitlements were limited to 96% of their full supply since June 11, based on the June TWSA. Prorationing is now 100%. <P> “The basin started using reservoir storage on June 11 to help meet basin irrigation and instream flow demands. This is about 10 days earlier than normal,” said Chuck Garner, Yakima Project River Operations supervisor. “Although the overall supply is adequate, the reservoir carry-over at the end of the season is likely to be below normal.” <P> Reclamation will provide water supply forecasts monthly through July. Specific water delivery levels will not be determined until later in the year after reservoir storage begins to decline. <P> This forecast is based on flows, precipitation, snowpack, and reservoir storage as of July 1, along with estimates of future precipitation and river flows. Other future weather conditions that determine the timing of the runoff, and the demand for water also are critical in determining streamflows, prorations, and the extent to which the reservoirs fill. <P> If summer temperatures, precipitation, and runoff are unfavorable, Reclamation still expects an adequate supply. Because longer term weather conditions can be unpredictable, Garner recommends water conservation always be considered by users in the Yakima basin. <P> For more information, visit Reclamation’s website at <a href="https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/yakima">https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/yakima</a>. <P> <P>

https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62530 Reclamation to close Cascade dam road for maintenance
CASCADE, Idaho – The Bureau of Reclamation will temporarily close the roadway across Cascade Dam to the public while maintenance work is performed between June 25 and June 29, 2018, from Lake Way to Shore Drive. <P> Maintenance of the roadway is necessary for the continued safe and reliable access of the public, operating personnel, and emergency services to and across Cascade Dam. <P> "We realize that this temporary roadway closure will be an inconvenience to the public, but it is essential for public safety and to provide a safe working environment for the crews,” said Vicki Hoffman, Middle Snake Field Office Operations and Maintenance Manager. <P> Temporary access restrictions on Cascade Dam Road will include vehicles and pedestrians. Lake Way or Vista Point Boulevard may be used as alternate routes for recreation access during the closure. <P> Cascade Dam is located in Valley County on the North Fork of the Payette River, about one-half mile northwest of Cascade, Idaho, or about 79 miles north of Boise, Idaho. <P> Cascade Dam was constructed in 1948 and serves as a multipurpose facility, providing water for irrigation, hydropower, recreation, and flood control. <P>
https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62494 Reclamation seeks comments on Minidoka Powerplant Unit 7 maintenance project
MINIDOKA COUNTY, Idaho – The Bureau of Reclamation is seeking comments on a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the Minidoka Powerplant Unit 7 draft tube bulkhead structure, located at Minidoka Dam in Minidoka County, Idaho. <P> The proposed project would address the need for replacement and repair of the original bulkhead gate structure that has deteriorated over 75 years in service. The bulkhead gate steel slots and adjacent concrete have deteriorated to a point where the bulkhead gate may not be adequately stabilized in the structure, and failure could result in the dewatering of Lake Walcott. Leaks caused by this degradation severely hamper Reclamation’s ability to dewater and perform adequate routine maintenance on the lower portion of Unit 7. <P> This project would improve the structural integrity of Unit 7 to avoid further deterioration and allow dewatering for regular maintenance. The work would require short-term dewatering in the tailrace to perform removal and replacement of components, as well as placement of new concrete reinforcement structures. <P> Prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the draft EA analyzes two actions: the Proposed Action (implementing the project, as described above) and a No Action alternative (non-implementation). <P> The draft EA is available at https://www.usbr.gov/pn/programs/ea/idaho/minidokaunit/index.html. <P> Please send written comments on the draft EA to Ms. Amy Goodrich, Natural Resource Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, Snake River Area Office, 230 Collins Road, Boise, ID 83702, or via email to sra-nepa-comments@usbr.gov. Comments must be received by Monday, July 9, 2018. <P> If you have any questions about this project or would like to obtain a printed copy of the draft EA, please contact Ms. Goodrich at 208-383-2250. <P>
https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62493 Yakima Basin Water Supply - June Forecast
YAKIMA, Wash. – The Bureau of Reclamation’s June 2018 Total Water Supply Available forecast for the Yakima basin indicates the water supply will adequately satisfy senior and junior water rights this irrigation season. <P> “The Basin weather has oscillated from month to month; a very wet April was followed by a very warm and “dry” May. The rapid and heavy snowmelt in May brought on very high flows and has exhausted much of the snowpack,” said Chuck Garner, Yakima Project River Operations supervisor. “Never-the-less, with the reservoirs full, the Yakima basin water supply for the 2018 season will be adequate to fully meet demands this season.” <P> Reclamation will provide water supply forecasts monthly through July. Specific water delivery levels will not be determined until later in the year after reservoir storage begins to decline. <P> This forecast is based on flows, precipitation, snowpack, and reservoir storage as of June 1, along with estimates of future precipitation and river flows. Other future weather conditions that determine the timing of the runoff, and the demand for water also are critical in determining streamflows, prorations, and the extent to which the reservoirs fill. <P> If spring precipitation and runoff are unfavorable, Reclamation still expects an adequate supply. Because longer term weather conditions can be unpredictable, Garner recommends water conservation always be considered by users in the Yakima basin. <P> For more information, visit Reclamation’s website at <a href="https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/yakima">https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/yakima</a>. <P> <P>
https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62450 Reclamation to Conduct Drone Flights at Grand Coulee Dam
GRAND COULEE, Washington — The Bureau of Reclamation is planning to conduct Unmanned Aircraft System, also known as a “drone,” flights over and around Grand Coulee Dam to photograph and obtain video footage of the structure while water is spilling over the drum gates during the month of June. The last aerial videography of the dam was taken in 2002. Because many improvements have been made to the facility since then, current video footage will capture the updated infrastructure. <P> Reclamation’s UAS team consists of Federal Aviation Administration and Department of the Interior–certified pilots. The team will operate a small black quadcopter primarily on federal lands but may fly over adjacent private lands such as the Town of Coulee Dam, Grand Coulee, and Electric City. There is an FAA No-Fly Zone over Grand Coulee Dam. Reclamation has obtained the required authorization from the FAA and Department of the Interior, which allows the flights to occur within the No-Fly Zone surrounding the dam. Strong safety requirements and practices will be observed, including not flying over people. <P> For further information concerning the flights, contact Kirsten Strough at (208) 258-0068. <P>

https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordID=62301 Boise River flows increase to bankfull
BOISE, Idaho – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation are increasing flows from Lucky Peak Dam by 1,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Friday, May 25. The increase in flows will be completed by increasing 500 cfs at 9 am and 500 cfs at 11 am. Flows through the city of Boise, as measured at the Glenwood Bridge gauge, will increase to approximately 6,500 cfs by Friday afternoon, and may fluctuate slightly due to changing irrigation withdrawals or local precipitation. The increase in flows is necessary because of continued wet conditions forecasted over the next week. Residents can expect future adjustments in flows through the greater Boise area as reservoir managers continue to operate the reservoir system for flood risk management. <P> A flow rate of approximately 7,000 cfs is considered flood-stage level at the Glenwood Bridge gauge on the Boise River. At 6,500 cfs (considered bankfull), large sections of the Greenbelt path adjacent to the river will be submerged and minor flooding may affect portions of Eagle Island. The Greenbelt serves as a flowage easement area, intentionally designed to provide space for higher flows occurring in the Boise River. <P> Currently, the Boise River reservoirs are at approximately 98 percent of capacity. As the flood risk subsides in the coming weeks, Lucky Peak’s reservoir will be filled to the normal summer operating level to accommodate recreational opportunities. A full supply of irrigation water is anticipated this summer.

BOISE, Idaho – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation increased flows from Lucky Peak Dam by 500 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Monday, May 21, at 11 am. An additional increase of 500 cfs will occur on Tuesday, May 22, at 11 am. Flows through the city of Boise, as measured at the Glenwood Bridge gauge, will increase to approximately 5,500 cfs by Tuesday afternoon, and may fluctuate slightly due to changing irrigation withdrawals or local precipitation. The increase in flows is because of the wet conditions the Boise basin has experienced over the last week. Residents can expect multiple future adjustments in flows through the greater Boise area as reservoir managers continue to fill the reservoir system. It is not anticipated that flows through the city of Boise will reach flood stage. <P> A flow rate of approximately 7,000 cfs is considered flood-stage level at the Glenwood Bridge gauge on the Boise River. At 5,500 cfs, water will seep onto low spots on the Greenbelt pathway, especially near bridge underpasses. The Greenbelt serves as a flowage easement area, intentionally designed to provide space for higher flows occurring in the Boise River. <P> Currently, the Boise River reservoirs are at approximately 98 percent of capacity.
