Gauge Description:

Lake Pillsbury has low but boatable releases through the summer and fall.   Winter and spring releases can be high. 

 

The Van Arsdale outflow is below the take out and below the Potter powerhouse diversion so it is not accurate for this reach during low flow periods.  However, during high flow season it gives a good indication of actual flows because the diverted amount will be relatively small.    
EVA - EEL RIVER BELOW VAN ARSDALE DAM 24HR AVG - CDEC
Potter Powerhouse flows - 24HR AVG- CDEC

Flows at the take out should equal the flows below Van Arsdale minus the Potter powerhouse flows.
