Gauge Description:

American Whitewater negotiated real-time flow information with PG&E and for several years provided it through a web interface (AW Feather gauge). Via a new agreement reached in 2007 releases are scheduled for both Saturdays and Sundays generally on the fourth weekend of the month, June through September in Wet/ Normal years and July through September in Dry years. The flows shall be increased Saturday morning at the 400 cfs/hr ramp rate and by 9:00 a.m. be at the higher boating flow.  The flows shall be held at that level until about 3 p.m. that same day when flows shall be decreased at the 150 cfs/hr ramp rate to the lower flow and held at that flow until Sunday afternoon at about 2:00 p.m. when flows shall be reduced at 150 cfs/hr to the monthly base flow.  Flow levels are in the table below.
