If you have been watching the gauge on this one, you probably have already figured out that there is something awry. Earlier storm events flooded the Pit 5 Powerhouse and it is off line. PG&E does not expect to see this fixed until late August. Which means you will see flows in the Pit 5 reach until then. So yes, there will be extra opportunity for the upper Pit 5 run, however, the same storm events have washed out the road to the lower run take-out. In other words, the Class IV stretch will be accessible to the Bridge in Big Bend. The take-out for the Class III section is inaccessible on the Pit 5 Powerhouse Road. Again stay tuned for more info as I get it.
