Arrow Lakes Reservoir Discharge

Hello fly club members.  Just recieved this note from bc hydro and looks like the river is coming up on Saturday.  Combined increase from both rivers will be about 1.3 feet .  Have a look at the note from Mary Anne Coules.   Play safe if using the river.   RZ.   From: Coules, Mary Anne Sent: Friday, June 10, 2016 9:26 AM Subject: Arrow Lakes Reservoir Flow Change Notification   Good morning,   I am writing to advise you of changes to the discharge rates from Arrow Lakes Reservoir that will take place on Saturday, June 11. From 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., the discharge rate will increase from approximately 1,217 cubic metres per second (43,000 cubic feet per second) to approximately 1,557 cubic metres per second (55,000 cubic feet per second).   These changes are due to Columbia River Treaty requirements.   When combined with the outflows from the Kootenay River, Columbia River levels at Birchbank are expected to increase by 0.40 metres (1.3 feet) from the current levels. Please make safety your top priority when planning activities near the Columbia River.   For up-to-date reservoir elevation and river flow information, please call BC Hydro’s toll-free number at 1 877 924-2444 or visit bchydro.com. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 250-365-4565.   All the best,   Mary Anne Coules _______________________________________   Mary Anne Coules | Stakeholder Engagement Advisor   BC Hydro 601 18th Street Castlegar, BC  V1N 2N1   P     250 365 4565 M      250 608 1885 E      maryanne,coules@bchydro.com
