Ashokan Release Channel
NYCDEP will increase flow rate on the Ashokan Release Channel from 10 mgd to 150 mgd today and maintain a draw from the West Basin into the Catskill Aqueduct. This increase is intended to keep reservoir level on target with the CSSO of 95.5% and anticipating a surplus of forecasted inflows. Release rate is expected to stay at 150 mgd through the weekend and will be reevaluated next week. Current storage in the reservoir is 94.3% with a turbidity of 5.1 NTU.
