Fall stakeholder group meeting

The next meeting of the Upper Tuolumne River Stakeholder Group is set for October 22, 2010, 11am - 3pm at the Moccasin Administration Building (map).

Rain and snow fall this year provided significant amounts of water enabling a number of field experiments to test high flow geomorphic, hydrologic, and ecological thresholds. This work, combined with the substantial work conducted by Yosemite National Park scientists in Poopenaut Valley, has generated a large amount of data that is currently being analyzed and incorporated into draft flow recommendations for O'Shaughnessy Dam.

At the stakeholder meeting, the SFPUC and Yosemite National Park will provide an update regarding new information generated by the 2010 studies, present an overview of the draft flow recommendations, and provide a revised schedule for distributing the draft UTREP study report.
