BUREAU OF RECLAMATION
NAVAJO RESERVOIR RELEASE
NOTICE OF NO SPRING PEAK RELEASE
May 19, 2010

The Bureau of Reclamation has determined that there will not be a spring peak release from Navajo Reservoir in 2010. This decision is based on the San Juan River Basin Recovery Implementation Program (SJRIP) Flow Recommendations for Endangered Fish and forecasted hydrologic conditions. The release from Navajo Reservoir will continue at 500 cubic feet per second (cfs) until further notice. Releases are made for the authorized purposes of the Navajo Unit, and to attempt to maintain a target base flow through the endangered fish critical habitat reach of the San Juan River (Farmington to Lake Powell).

The San Juan River Basin Recovery Implementation Program recommends a target base flow of between 500 cfs and 1,000 cfs through the critical habitat area. The target base flow is calculated as the weekly average of gaged flows throughout the critical habitat area, therefore daily flows of less than 500 cfs may occur at some gages.

If you have any questions, please contact Pat Page at (970) 385-6560 or e-mail him at ppage@usbr.gov.
