    Default Pit 3 flow increase

    PG&E is working on the power generation facilitys' at Lake Britton.
    My understanding is that they are taking some generators off line
    and so will be diverting less water from the Pit 3 reach.
    Point is Pit 3 flows are up 547 CFS now and may go higher if and when Britton fills up and starts
    spilling.
    At this time Pit 4 and 5 flows are still normal.
    Actually Pit 5 is at 388 which is lower that I have seen it in a while.
    The press release I saw (which I can not find again) did not say anything
    about whether the 4 and 5 reaches would be affected.

    Default PG&E scheduled White Water flows Pit 5 9/26 and 9/27

    Excerpt from PG&E statement about flows this week-end:

    "Prior to the increase for September 26-27, flows in the Pit 5 Reach will be about 400 cubic feet per second (cfs). Early Saturday morning, PG&E will gradually increase water flows until it reaches 1,200 cfs, before 10 a.m. The flows will be held at this level until about 4 p.m. that day, then flows will gradually be reduced to 400 to 600 cfs.



    The higher flows will be repeated the next day at the same times, then, after 4 pm, gradually decreased to the normal flow of about 400 cfs."
