Default Update: Lamprey River

I received this email today.

Lamprey River
The Lamprey River has stream flow criteria that were established for the protection of instream public uses. If sufficient rain has not fallen by Monday morning to meet these criteria, then on Monday morning, water will be released, also known as a relief flow pulse, from Dolloff Dam on Pawtuckaway Lake. A two-day release of 10.5 cubic feet per second will be started Monday morning and continue through Wednesday morning. The purpose of the pulse is to restore the stream flow pattern in the Lamprey Designated River. Pawtuckaway Lake is expected to be lowered less than 0.05 feet (0.6 inches) by the two-day release. This pulse is one of several actions under the Lamprey River Water Management Plan. Other responses to this period of low stream flow include outside water use bans and cessation of a large withdrawal from the Lamprey River.
