New River Dries Release (WV) - Gauley Bridge,WV

Add to Personal Events

American Whitewater played a lead role in negotiating these releases. There are two releases in March, and five in late June through August each year. These releases only occur if inflows to the dam are between 3800 and 12,500. If flows are too high or too low they will be rescheduled for the next weekend. Check the power company website (TBD) for flow predictions and updates.
