There is more water behind Anderson Ranch Dam this year than at this time a year ago.
There is much more water behind Anderson Ranch Dam than in an average year. Usually in the winter the water should be draining from the reservoir but this year and last year the water coming into the pool has been enough to match the 300 cfs outflow.
Check out the two graphs. The only difference is the change in the blue line.
Next, we’ll look at snow accumulation and post something soon. The combination of snow accumulation and lots of water already stored behind Anderson Dam could mean a large run-off this spring. A cleansing flow for the river bed. Also higher flows which makes wading and floating a more complicated situation.
