Flow Release Plans as of March 24, 2015
Blakely is currently releasing about 9,500 CFS and this is being matched by the downstream Carpenter and Remmel Dams. Lake Ouachita is still up into the flood pool but should drop out in the next few days unless we get more rain. Once Ouachita is out of the flood pool, flow releases will be reduced to about 3600 CFS, which will be matched by Carpenter and Remmel. We will continue at this release into next week.
Tonight only, the flow releases from Blakely and Carpenter will be reduced from about 6 PM to 10 PM to accommodate the AGFC Fish Shocking program. At 10 PM flow releases will resume as before.
DeGray is releasing about 3000 CFS and the lake out of the flood pool.
The Hydro offices in Jones Mill are closed to visitation due to construction work being performed on site. Please call to make arrangements to meet with any of our personnel.
