Stonycreek Release

September 7 - September 8

Water splash

2024 Scheduled Whitewater Releases from Quemahoning Lake are scheduled and listed below. Releases during May and June are highly likely to occur as scheduled (unless maintenance or repairs are needed); releases after the beginning of July are dependent on reservoir levels. Also, releases in September and October are very rare! Also note: the valve can only release up to 500 cfs; and the maximum flow (in the river, measured at the Ferndale gauge) that a release can provide is 1,350 cfs, (which is around 3’ at Foustwell, 4.5’ at Ferndale). If the natural flow is 1,000 cfs, we will ONLY RELEASE additional 350 cfs. If natural flow is over 1,350 cfs, there is NO RELEASE. Any changes in the schedule will be posted here and on our Facebook page ASAP!

Note: If water level at the Quemahoning Reservoir is between 1626.0 and 1626.5 on the Sunday before a planned release, then a release will be made on the following Saturday only; if the water level is greater than 1626.5, then the release will be held on both the following Saturday and Sunday. And if the level at the Quemahoning Reservoir is below 1626 ft above sea level on the Sunday before the scheduled release: the release is cancelled. This may effect late summer releases. Watch here for updates. Also, note that on non-release days, the Stony is boatable when the Ferndale Gauge is above 500 cfs. This is likely accurate. Again, watch here for any possible changes.
