Reclamation Announces Final Schedule for Releases into Trinity River as Part of Restoration Program
The Bureau of Reclamation announced today that releases from Lewiston Dam into the Trinity River will increase to a peak flow of 6,000 cubic feet per second for four days as part of the Trinity River Restoration Program.
Releases will begin increasing April 21, reach the peak flow May 6 and hold for four days, then decrease to 4,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) by May 11, and to a summer base-flow of 450 cfs by July 26.
The public should take appropriate safety precautions whenever river flows are high. Landowners are advised to clear personal items and debris from the floodplain prior to the releases.
A daily schedule of flow releases is available at: http://trrp.net/water/index.htm. At this website, the public may subscribe to automated notifications (via phone or email) of Trinity River release changes.
