Water Management Issues:

1.  2014 has been officially designated as a Super Dry water year, and this designation is expected to remain in effect until around February 10, 2015.  The above schedule reflects this scenario through the end of February, 2015.  Note that the schedule after Feb 10, 2015 could therefore change (and hopefully it will), but in any event expect boatable releases every Saturday.

2.  Times reflect releases at Chili Bar.  It takes approximately two hours for the water to travel from Chili Bar to Coloma, and three hours to Camp Lotus.

3.  Releases shown are minimum releases.  Actual releases may be higher than shown.  In addition, sudden higher or lower (or no) releases may result from emergency mechanical or electrical conditions.

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