The Bureau of Reclamation announced today that in order to maximize hydroelectric generation and assist in the stability of the regional electrical grid, Davis Dam is projected to increase to a 5-unit maximum release on Monday, August 17th and Tuesday, August 18th between the hours of 5pm – 9pm MDT.
Colorado River flows below Davis Dam are projected to peak during this time at approximately 24,200 cfs, more than 1,200 cfs higher than a typical 5-unit flow.
Although these releases fall within normal operational parameters, additional care should be exercised while boating and recreating on the Colorado River below Davis Dam.
If you have any questions, please contact the Lower Colorado Basin River Operations Control Center at 702-293-8373 or [email protected].
