The U.S. Army Corps Engineers Philadelphia District has announced it has enough water storage to enhance fisheries releases from the Francis E. Walter Dam for the remainder of the recreation season.
The Corps updated the recreation plan, which states fisheries releases will be added if adequate water storage is accumulated in the reservoir. The releases include weekday and weekend enhancements of 100 cubic feet per second of water for the period of Aug. 20 through Sept. 16 and 50 cubic feet per second of water from the period of Sept. 17-Oct. 14.
The Corps will announce at a later date if it is able to hold a whitewater release on Sept. 16, which is the final event of the recreation plan. To see the plan or view updates, please visit: http://www.nap.usace.army.mil/Projects/FEWalter/index.htm http://www.facebook.com/fewalterdam
