anyone know about the very High flows going into Pardee . from the Mokelumne river??
I see the chart has it at over 50,000 CFS
is this wrong or what
heres the site Mokelumne - Inflow Pardee Res (http://www.dreamflows.com/graphs/day.422.php)
and here is s another stating the same .
Dreamflows Realtime Report (http://www.dreamflows.com/flows.php?page=real&zone=canv&form=maps)
look for the red area in the CA sierra -West slope
it has it at 58,874 CFS

Maybe a glitch in the reading?

Check the 30 day: Mokelumne - Inflow Pardee Res (http://www.dreamflows.com/graphs/mon.422.php)

Best,

Both sites probably get their information from the same source. I thought I read last week in the local paper that the inflow was 500 fps, could be wrong.

The change looks to be within the last few hours. Either it's a gauge problem or a dam broke.

The simple answer is no!It's not getting 60,000cfs inflow!!Think about it,where is the water coming from!!You ever see a 60,000cfs release from a major dam?It's HUGE!!!:bartsimpson:

My thoughts exactly. It would be like a 50' high wall of water if it happened as fast as the timeline shows.

Think your correct . maybe it was a gauge , now its at 0 CFS. Can be it got stuck do to lack of water to monitor!!! .
