|The B120 report for February came out Friday, and it predicts that the "Unimpaired Runoff" above Folsom Reservoir will be 2.52 MAF (million acre-feet). This is within the Below Normal range.|
The result is that scheduled releases below Chili Bar will continue unchanged. See the Chili Bar release schedule for details. However, note that these are only the guaranteed releases - in practice, at their discretion, SMUD/PG&E may release boatable flows any day of the week, any time. Just don't count on them.
This new schedule will persist until the next B120 bulletin comes out, around March 10. If we have significant precipitation between now and then, the situation could improve after March 10. Conversely, it could get worse. So be sure to "think rain", and check back again around March 10.
