At our last Danville Utilities Commission Meeting (June 23rd) I
requested that the City Electric Department establish a website and
notify the public when they know they will release water so the Kibler
boaters could plan and take advantage of dam releases. This information
can now be found on the Danville Utilities website -
www.danvilleutilities.com Click on Pinnacles Water Release Schedule.
It doesn't appear to be detailed yet, but certainly better than
nothing. Let me know how it is working and what we might do to improve it.
Good Luck! Hope to join you soon for a Kibler release.
The hydroplant late last year( 06' ) started selling there power so this has changed there generating schedule. I hope this doesn't change there commitment to paddlers and they continue to have recreational releases throughout the summer on Saturdays.
It usually has to be 90+ degrees in Danville for the Power Plant at Kibler Valley to run - you can call the power plant on those days at 1-276-251-5141 to see if they are releasing. If you can catch it at 10,000 it's real good, I would say 7500 is a minimum.
Tell us about this gauge by leaving a comment.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
