PG&E has confirmed that they are changing the recreational flow days in October to 4 consecutive days starting Friday October 6 through Monday October 9 (Columbus Day Weekend). This is due to resource constraints brought on by a combination of winter storm damage to the facilities, roads and increased reliance on Pit 1 generation to make up for the outage of the Pit 5 powerhouse.

PG&E will start ramping up spill at 7:00 am on the 5th and it will be approx 1000 CFS by 6:00 am on the 6th. The peak will be between 1000 and 1150 CFS (inflow) and will remain until they ramp out of the spill at 4:00 pm on the 9th. It will take approximately 8 hours for the spill to be ramped out and back to minimum instream flows.

To summarize PIT 1 Recrational Flows will be:

October 6, 7, 8 & 9
1000-1150 cfs
