Just explored the Danville City Webpage as Bob Schasse recommended. No release schedule was found.
I assume that on will have to call the plant the Saturday one is planning to run up there. Is it
true that Danville is only mandated by their FERC license to release every second weekend? Where
could I get a cop of that to see what it does say? Thanks. Gerald L. Featherstone

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. ~Bob Schasse bobschasse@comcast.net

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.

From Boatertalk:

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.
