This page provides scheduled river flow information for sites currently reported by Dreamflows.

Note: Most of the following scheduled river flows are good-faith commitments by the operating agency or utility.  So, in general, these releases will actually happen.  However, for various operational, health, safety, legal and other reasons, things may go wrong, and the actual releases may be higher or lower than those scheduled here, or there could be no release.  So, always check just before your trip to see that flows are still scheduled.

Other entries are short-term planned releases that can change at short notice, i.e. they give an idea of what's planned but don't count on them.

To check the reliability of a given schedule, select the Synopsis tab, scroll to the bottom, and view the table in the Notes section.
