UPDATE: PG&E cancels plans to increase flows

2:44 p.m. UPDATE: PG&E announced that it will NOT increase flows as previously announced an hour ago.

PG&E announced that it will likely increase flows on a portion of the North Fork Feather River starting today, Sept. 28

Flows along the Seneca reach – the portion of river between Canyon Dam and the Belden Reservoir in Caribou – will go from about 37 cubic feet per second (cfs) to about 350 to 400 cfs.

Those recreating in or near the river are urged to exercise caution due to higher flows.

PG&E needs to fill the Belden Reservoir so it can generate more power at the Belden Powerhouse and other downstream powerhouses along the Feather River.
