The Trinity Management Council has recommended a flow schedule for releases to the Trinity River from the Trinity reservoir based on a dry year designation by the state Department of Water Resources.
The schedule, which still must be approved by Interior Department officials, includes a spring high flow that will begin ramping up from the current rate of 300 cubic feet per second on Wednesday, April 22, reach a high of 8,500 cfs on May 5 and 6, and then drop off. This recommended high spring flow is higher than the 4,500 cfs called for in a dry year by the Trinity River Record of Decision and was recommended by Trinity River Restoration Program staff for fisheries reasons under the adaptive management allowed by the ROD. The recommended schedule makes adjustments to other parts of the schedule so as not to change the total volume of water to the river for the entire year called for in the Record of Decision, 453,000 acre-feet.
The Journal will share a more detailed schedule as soon as possible.
