We will be very slowly incrementing the release. Today we are increasing to 3200 cfs by 4pm. We will be re-evaluating the release tomorrow and possibly doing another increase, but I will send out a public notice if and when that occurs.

Thanks-
Susan

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR
2016 SPRING PEAK RELEASE UPDATE
May 31, 2016
SENT VIA FAX AND E-MAIL

The Bureau of Reclamation will resume increasing the release out of Navajo Reservoir beginning today, May 31st at 2:00 PM, reaching 3,200 cubic feet per second (cfs) by 4:00 PM. This release will be held to evaluate conditions along the San Juan River. If it is determined there is no significant risk to the public safety, releases will be increased in small increments with a goal of reaching 5,000 cfs. Any increases will be accompanied by future public notifications. Areas in the immediate vicinity of the river channel may be unstable and dangerous. Please use extra caution near the river channel and protect and/or remove any valuable property in these areas.

During spring operations, releases from the Navajo Unit will be made in an attempt to remain at or below the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers safe channel capacity of 5,000 cfs between Navajo Dam and the confluence with the Animas River in Farmington, and 12,000 cfs downstream of Farmington. The release may be changed or reduced if precipitation forecasts show risk of exceeding safe channel capacity in the San Juan River San Juan River.

If you have any questions, or would like further information, please contact Susan Behery at 970-385-6560 or email at sbehery@usbr.gov, Marc Miller at 970-385-6541, email at mbmiller@usbr.gov, Ryan Christianson 970-248-0652, email rchristianson@usbr.gov.
