Feb 11, 2021:
Started reporting flow information for the following California site:
Eel - At Hearst

Jun 8, 2020:
Started reporting flow information for the following Idaho sites:
Salmon - Near Shoup
Salmon - Above Corn Creek
Dreamflows started reporting the Salmon - Above Corn Creek estimate at the request of Pete Arpin.

Note: Salmon - Near Shoup is a real gauge.  Salmon - Above Corn Creek is a virtual gauge, computed by summing Salmon - Near Shoup and Mi. Salmon - At Mouth.

May 23, 2020:
Started reporting flow information for the following California site:
Silver Fk American - Above SF American
This virtual gauge is a computation based on three actual/physical EID gauges, all close together.

Previously, Dreamflows reported a similar computation, with the same name and location, performed by EID.  However that computation has recently become unreliable.  Thanks to Jeff Wasielewski for suggesting that Dreamflows perform this computation and publish the results itself.

Started reporting flow information for the following California site:
No. Battle Creek - Above SF Confluence

May 10, 2020:
One of the bulletin board database tables on the Dreamflows server was corrupted recently, and the admins were unable to recover it.  The result was that when paddlers posted a bulletin board message, various undesirable things happened:
* the person posting the message received an error message, so tried again ... and again.
* folks who had asked for bulletin board notifications didn't receive them.
* the message was not correctly marked as 'unread' again.
* bulletin board searches based on keywords failed.

I've since re-created the table, so posts and notifications work again.  Searches should work properly again soon.

May 3, 2020:
The physical Idaho Power So. Payette - Below Deer Creek gauge is no longer reporting flow data, so Dreamflows has started reporting estimated flows at the same location:
So. Payette - Below Deer Creek
Note: This is an estimated flow site, so expect inaccuracies.

May 2, 2020:
Since Borel Powerhouse was decommissioned, Kern - Rel Lake Isabella and Kern - Above Borel Powerhouse have been reporting the same flow.  To match this reality, they have been merged on the flow reports into one site:
Kern - Below Lake Isabella
This is still the same physical gauge, maintained and operated by the Army Corps of Engineers.

April 27, 2020:
Added the following California scheduled-release site to the Fantasy Flows page:
Klamath - J.C. Boyle Schedule
Dreamflows is also publishing this data in calendar form, and as a graph.  These predictions are for the flows below J.C. Boyle Dam, i.e. for the Bypass run.

Also, for scheduled-releases below J.C. Boyle Powerhouse, i.e. for the Hell's Corner run, Dreamflows used to send you to the relevant Pacific Power page.  Instead, Dreamflows is now publishing this data itself in calendar form, and as a graph.

April 13, 2020:
Started reporting flow information for the following new California sites:
Trinity - Above North Fork
No. Trinity - At Helena (est)
Dreamflows started reporting the Helena estimate at the request of Joseph Hatcher.  This replaces the old physical gauge at the same location, which stopped reporting last year due to lack of funding.  Note: Flows reported by this new Helena site are only estimates, and could therefore be inaccurate.  On the other hand the Above North Fork site is a real gauge, so (most of the time) is accurate.

January 20, 2020:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Idaho site:
Moose Creek - Above Selway River

January 6, 2020:
Started reporting flow information for the following new Oregon sites:
W. Fk Cow Creek - Near Glendale
No. Clackamas - Above Mouth
No. Bull Run - Near Multnomah Falls


Note: The historical changes page provides a list of additional Dreamflows changes, going back to early 2002.
