Seasonal Increased Flows

Due to the current series of storms expected to impact the region over the next week, TID is making seasonal releases to the Tuolumne River to accommodate the forecasted water inflow to Don Pedro Reservoir.

These planned releases over the next seven to ten days will reach approximately 7,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) and will vary in timing, duration and magnitude. While these releases will cause the river to rise significantly, they will not be enough to push it out of its historic channel.

TID would like to strongly caution the public to exercise extreme care as these high-flow conditions will cause the river to be swifter and it could contain more debris than normal as it has been several years since flows have been increased to this level.
