I'd give fishinwrench's left nut for some low water this fall on the White.  I was gonna offer one of Pete's too, but he'd never forgive me.

Water off until noon and then 2-3 units the rest of the day.  Day after day.....

You dodged a bullet.😁

Bull is still rising, they just had it down to 660, we had this rain event and now it is close to 674.   Running full generation, they can drop Bull about 6" a day, so we're looking at close to a month to get Bull back to 660.  And they haven't started yet.

Isn't going to work that way. The Newport gage will be dropping to 12 ft from 21 ft on April 15th. That mean ALOT less water will be released at that point. I'm guessing we are  looking mid summer before Bull gets to be back to normal, and we haven't even got through the heavy rain months of April and May yet.

That seems likely, based on previous high water springs.

It may not drop to 12ft. Based on the operational plan from the COE, if the total % flood pool in use was 50% or greater you get a different regulating stage that incrementally moves that date back to May 15th and gives additional downstream capacity. Today based on the COE numbers the 4 lake system sets at 46% so it wont take much to push into that higher regulating stage. 

Still yet....it will probably be summer.

Forgot about the exceptions..... there is always exceptions with the government 😂😂

It is supposed to hit the 50% mark on the 30th and likely exceeded it.
