May Whitewater Releases from Quemahoning Reservoir

Cambria and Somerset Counties will be in the Yellow restriction zone starting this Friday (5/15/20). So we have been given the go ahead to have a normal release this weekend: May 16 & 17.  Reservoir is full with 7 in going over the spillway and the Stony is running at 1280 cfs (11 AM, Monday 5/11) and they are calling for rain later this week (and warmer temperatures). So we might not even need a release! Looks like paddling on most of our local rivers might be good! Please remember that we are still dealing with the pandemic. Paddling is safe. But try to limit the size of groups before and after paddling. Please wear masks when shuttling.  Hug your boats not your buddies.

Releases for May 23rd and 30 & 31 are also back on schedule. Enjoy.

Greenhouse Park is partially opening on Friday the 15th. Whitewater Park and boater access will be open but the bathrooms and pavilions are closed.
