2019 McPhee Release Update

March 20,2019:  The record snowfalls of early March have pushed forecasts up 50% driving the chances of a McPhee managed release, “spill”, over 50%.  Based on current low storage any spill would not start until mid to late May and could last from 2 to 4 weeks.  That leaves it almost 2 months out to monitor and plan.  Reclamation will set a public meeting in mid-April that we will post here ahead of time.  Next update will be around April 5 after the new CBRFC forecast. For the next few weeks releases below McPhee will remain at 40 CFS.
