The Cambria Somerset Authority (CSA) is currently doing work on the spillway at the Que. They need to keep lake levels below 1627’ pool elevation. So they will allow another RELEASE on JULY 26th and 27th!!!!! This will occur no matter what lake levels are like. So plan accordingly! The Que will need over 1 foot of water to reach levels needed for Releases in August. So this might be the last for a while.
