Everything looks fine. here’s an update from DEP
Monday, April 17, 2017 10:03 AM
Good morning! I hope everyone got outside and enjoyed the nice weather over the weekend.
I’ve received several calls this morning from folks who wondered why DEP cut down the release from Cannonsville Reservoir, and what they can expect later today and this week.
The release from Cannonsville will be temporarily shut off this morning while our engineers perform their annual test of gates at the release chamber. This is normal maintenance work that they perform every April. This test was planning in conjunction with state DEC, and the Decree Party states were informed of the annual gate test as well.
While the release is shut down this morning, about 130 mgd (200 cfs) will continue to flow over the spillway. The release will be turned back on by early afternoon. That usually happens sometime between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. At that point the release from Cannonsville will be 700 mgd (1,080 cfs).
As always, feel free to give me a ring at the office number below if you have any questions.
