*Notice: Anticipated flows are always preliminary and are provided for informational purposes only. Flows are subject to real-time changes in weather and runoff conditions, and operations related to hydroelectric generation, flood control, and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission license requirements. This data is not intended to be used for flood forecasting. Storm runoff can produce extremely cold and variable flow releases below Englebright Reservoir. Flows can range from the minimum flow requirement to thousands or 10s of thousands cubic feet per second and change rapidly. Be prepared for sudden flow changes when recreating on the lower Yuba River or avoid the river altogether for your safety. Additional information can be viewed online.
Based on storm projections for the next week, Englebright Reservoir is expected to resume spilling Thursday, March 21, and to continue until early next week. Flows in the lower Yuba River are managed to comply with license and flow requirements. Flows can change swiftly and suddenly, so be prepared when recreating on the lower Yuba River or avoid the river for your safety.
During this time of the year, New Bullards Bar Reservoir is operated to preserve the flood pool, therefore storm and flood control operations may require higher or lower releases. With the current snow pack projections, New Bullards Bar Reservoir should top out, at full, in June. Flows can change swiftly and suddenly, so be prepared when recreating on the lower Yuba River or avoid the river for your safety.
*Reservoir elevations, storage and flood space data are based on midnight values, and flows are averages from the previous day.
