Topic: Spaulding to spill soon
|Posted: May 12, 2011Post Subject: Spaulding to spill soon
|PG&E estimates that Spaulding will spill about 120,000 af over the next 60 days. This is an average of 1000 cfs spilling at Spaulding for that period. |
While the average may be about 1000, flow peaks will be much higher, as much as 5000 cfs.
Cisco peaks in the early am; inflow to Spaulding will peak later, but still probably in the first quarter of the day. Therefore spill may begin in the first quarter of the day. In the morning before paddling the South Yuba, check Langs Crossing and Bowman to see what is spilling.
