Water Management Issues:

1.  Originally, 400 cfs releases were scheduled until October 14.  However, because anticipated power generation was not required after all, and because they needed to prevent spill at Forbestown Diversion dam downstream, the last boatable scheduled release day will be October 6.  The schedule could change again, so be sure to check back for updates from time to time.

2.  The above schedule shows the expected releases, as planned by South Feather Water & Power.  Actual flows could be higher or lower than shown due to emergency mechanical or electrical conditions, unexpected precipitation, or other reasons outside SFW&P's control.

3.  Before heading out, be sure to check the relevant Dreamflows flow report and Bulletin Board thread to determine current and expected release trends.

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