Release Channel closed

The Ashokan Release Channel was shut down at 1:30AM today from 600 MGD to 0 MGD. This was due to Mt. Marion reaching action level. The protocol for the release channel stipulates that the channel be closed whenever the Mt. Marion gauge reaches 17-feet to prevent reservoir releases from adding to flooding threats. Levels on the Esopus Creek at Mt. Marion rose overnight due to rainfall runoff.
