The Corp has informed me that they plan on running 2 units plus the flood gates thru Sunday if the rain forecast for the weekend allows this release downstream. After Sunday they plan to just use the 2 generators and start to reduce the flow slowly to allow the banks to stabilize and reduce the erosion which occurs after a high water event. Hopefully by later next week we will see more normal releases due to power demand only. The flow is approximately 9900 cfs at this time and this is a dangerous level to navigate the river. Please use extreme caution if you venture out while the flood gates are being used. Enjoy the river but respect it!
