2009 Lehigh Release Schedule Announced

Posted: 02/09/2009

The Army Corps of Engineers recently announced the 2009 schedule of releases from the Francis E. Walter dam on the Lehigh River.  You can read the ACOE Release Notice, or you may also check the AW event calender for the release dates. 


These releases are the product of significant efforts by the paddling community to work with the ACOE and other stakeholders to improve the management of the Lehigh River's flow regime.  We would like to thank all the paddlers who have been attending meetings and writing comments regarding this issue.
