North Platte Flush And Flow Next Week

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

A reminder to outdoor recreationists of the North Platte River flush and flow that starts Monday.

The Bureau of Reclamation in partnership with the Wyoming Game Fish carry out the process in the spring bringing water levels from 500 cubic feet per second up to 4000 cfs and back to 500 over 24 hour period for four days in a row next week.

Bureau of Reclamation Acting Area Manager, Lyle Myler says the process benefits river trout.

“We provide this flush and flow which simulates kind of a natural runoff situation and flushes the silt and sediment out of the gravel and improves spawning for fish.”

Highest flows will happen at around 4am.

Sunday also signals the filling of Alcova Reservoir ten feet to summer irrigation levels.

Myler also says current snow conditions indicate the Pathfinder spillway will not likely be used for the 2012 runoff.
