Water Management Issues:

1.  PG&E reported in April: "Pit 5 Powerhouse will be in a two unit outage for most of September starting 9/3 so there may be additional boating opportunities throughout September.  When we get closer to the date and get a forecast of inflows, we will have a better idea of the flows that we will be releasing at Pit 5."

2.  Releases shown are minimum releases.  Actual releases may be higher than shown.  In addition, sudden higher or lower (or no) releases may result from emergency mechanical or electrical conditions.

3.  Always check back here, and also the Pit 5 thread, before heading to the river.

4.  Times reflect releases below Pit 5 Dam.

5.  Users are urged to use caution and to wear all appropriate personal protective equipment.
