Bighorn River Flows increase to 5,000 CFS

Flows increase to 5,000cfs for the weekend


As we were expecting, this just arrived from Reclamation:

“We will be increasing our river releases from the Yellowtail Afterbay Dam by an additional 500 cfs at 4:00 pm today and another 500 cfs at 8:00 am tomorrow morning.  This will bring our total release to the
river to 5,000 cfs for the weekend.  Why the change?  The storms that finished up last night were a real difference maker for the basin.  I have attached some snow water equivalent graphs which tell the story.
We need to make these adjustments now to control the reservoir rise at this time and be mindful with the warmer weather forecast for the weekend.”
