The Upper Snake reservoir system is currently 93% full (3,746,699 acre-feet out of 4,045,695 acre-feet). Flow changes from Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir are being made today to continue to track along flood control requirements. Additional discharge changes could be made in the coming days at Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir and will depend on inflow forecasts and storage in the reservoirs. The reservoirs are targeted to fill in late June.
