Straight from the CSA: “We are currently 4.5 feet below spillway. In an effort to keep the water level down for the Birdman Road Boat Launch Project the CSA WILL RELEASE WATER THIS WEEKEND 9/24&25 as per schedule.”
This means we will have a normal release this weekend. And the weather is forecast to be beautiful!
Due to poor weather (cloudy, cool and windy) there will not be a full moon paddle at Quemahoning Reservoir this evening (Friday, September 16).
As of Monday 9/12/16, the releases for the drawdown are finished. Unless we get a lot of rain (like a tropical storm) they are likely finished for the rest of this year.
“Quemahoning Reservoir is being drawn down. There will be a 500 cfs release from Wed, Sept 7 through Sunday, Sept 11 during the daylight hours which will be dialed back to less than 250 cfs during the night. 500 cfs will run from 8 AM to 5 PM (from reservoir)”
