Water Management Issues:

1.  The above schedule is based on information provided by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

2.  Detailed scheduled release information for the next few days is shown on this graph.

3.  Times reflect releases at Goodwin Dam.  It takes approximately four hours for the water to travel from Goodwin Dam to Orange Blossom Bridge.

4.  Releases shown are expected releases.  Actual releases may be different, and may change at short notice.  In addition, sudden higher or lower (or no) releases may result from emergency mechanical or electrical conditions.

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