SMUD told us that because of maintenance at Union Valley Reservoir, flows out of Slab Creek Reservoir will be not enough for boating this weekend. Today they forecast a release of about 500 AF, but then released so much that PG&E; generated for several hours. I just phoned PG&E; and asked them to hold any more water they get over the next two days to try and fill Chili Bar enough for a Saturday run. They said they would do that – so if SMUD gives them much more than they need to meet minimum aquatic flow (about 400 AF per day) PG&E; will make it available for boating on Saturday morning. I should know where we are at on Friday afternoon/evening and will post again then.
