WSA Release from Alameda Reservoir
Posted on Monday March 20, 2017 at 01:50PM
Snowfall in the first couple of weeks of March has increased the Alameda Reservoir inflow forecast. As such we are required under the terms of the 1989 Canada-US- Agreement to bring the reservoir down to 558.0 m prior to the start of runoff. On March 17, 2017 we will increase the release rate to 5m³/s and on Monday March 20, 2017 it will increase to 10m³/s. If necessary the total out flow will be increased to 15m³/s. Please use caution when on or near the ice at all times.
