Even if there is a Scheduled Release from Deep Creek, see calendar on right under Events, there is still a chance that they may not do a release.
The level of Deep Creek Lake must be above the lower line of the Rules Curve for today's date. If above the top curve they may have an unscheduled release.
Natural flow in the river effects the final level. To estimate what the bridge gauges may be after they do a release use the UY Calculator
The power company at Deep Creek has agreed to notify boaters of upcoming unscheduled releases; call 315-413-2823 for the announcements, or link to www.deepcreekhydro.com and look in the upper right corner for the generator status (on or off) or left corner for "Whitewater Schedule".
The Deep Creek site reminds you that "all releases are subject to lake level conditions."
Unscheduled releases are always a possibility, especially when the weather and the water are warm. Check the Deep Creek Hydro website, or call 315-413-2823, for updates.
Sang Run = Friendsville usgs - 1.25 . Typical Summer release is 600 cfs, which brings the river to about 2.0' at Sang Run (3.2' Friendsville USGS).
