Water Management Issues:

1.  PCWA's whitewater flow release schedule will be modified for the Tevis Cup Equestrian Race scheduled on Saturday, August 1, 2015, to accommodate race participant safety.  At this time, the tentative schedule is 1000 cfs from 7am to 10am.  However, that could change; PCWA will release the final schedule when it becomes available.

2.  Times reflect releases at Oxbow Powerhouse/Ralston Dam.  It takes approximately two hours for the water to travel from Oxbow Powerhouse to the gauge above Tunnel Chute, about 6 hours to reach the Ruck-a-Chucky/Drivers Flat area, and about 10 hours to reach the North Fork confluence.

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.
