Water Management Issues:

1.  A given release may get canceled (possibly at short notice) if the running-average water temperature just above White Rock Powerhouse reaches 12°C, or if the inflow to Slab Creek reservoir gets too high.

2.  Several other factors and issues apply this year, partly because it's a high-water year, and partly because of road and gauge damage.  See the Slab Creek thread for details.

3.  Releases shown are scheduled releases.  Currently, the flow below Slab Creek dam can't be precisely controlled, so actual flows may be higher or lower than shown.  In addition, sudden higher or lower (or no) releases may result from emergency mechanical or electrical conditions.  Lastly, increase in flow down the run due to accretions can be surprisingly high.

4.  Always check back here, and also the Slab Creek thread, before heading to the river.

5.  Times reflect releases below Slab Creek Dam.

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