Jackson Dam Flows 5-21-2015

 

Below is the explanation from the Bureau of Reclamation for the Snake River Jackson Wyoming:

“Cool weather has slowed inflow to Jackson Lake and we are still on track to fill before Tuesday, May 25. To delay the fill into next week we will increase discharge from 590 cfs to 1,800 cfs on Thursday, May 21. The changes will be staged in three increments at 3 hours intervals from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm with 4:00 pm reserved to make small corrections as necessary.

Once the Lake fills, inflow must be passed to avoid storing above Lake capacity. With snow depleted at all but the highest elevations inflow is not expected to exceed 4,000 cfs. Inflow should rebound as temperatures rise and if it reaches 4,000 cfs, we will not subsequently reduce flow below 4,000 cfs until late in June or later.”

What does this mean? Based on this information we’re not planning to be guiding on the Snake until late June or early July.
