Thanks-- Will

South Feather Water and Power are trying to finalize the start date with PG&E right now. They are shooting for starting the release on Sept 15 at 400 cfs. They expect to maintain boatable flows for at least three weeks (and hopefully significantly longer).

Note: This is just their general thinking right now - the details could well be different.

South Feather Water and Power report today as follows:

"Due to the heatwave we are having some dates move around with PG&E, we will start flows on 9/22/2017 at 400cfs for at least 4 weeks.  We will keep you informed if there are any changes as we get closer to that date."

South Fork Feather Releases

American Whitewater has checked back with South Feather Water & Power Agency and flows have been finalized as follows:

“…firm date of September 28th for the flows to be at 400cfs for at least a 4 week period. It takes 3 full days to ramp the flow from it’s current rate to the final rate of 400cfs. The ramping will start on the 26th and will be ramped approximately 140 cfs a day. The channel should be at 400 cfs by the afternoon of the 28th.”

Thanks, Theresa.

The release schedule in calendar form is available here.  Note that the schedule as shown extends only to October 27; be sure to check back nearer the time for a final end-of-release date.

South Feather Water and Power report today as follows:

"I apologize for the late notice but due to some operational needs we are starting to ramp flows out of Little Grass Valley Reservoir presently and should be at 400 cfs by tomorrow.  The end date for the flows will be approximately the same as the original."

The updated schedule is here.  Note that the schedule as shown extends to October 27 but that could change; be sure to check back nearer the time for a final end-of-release date.
