Ashokan release increased to 600 MDG

The Ashokan Release Channel is currently being increased today from 300 to approximately 600 MGD in 40 MDG increments. The current release channel turbidity is 8.0 ntu.

To continue with discharge mitigation in accordance with the interim release protocol, DEP has further increased flow rates in the Ashokan Release Channel in order to maintain a 10% void in the reservoir.

These discharge mitigation releases are expected to continue for approximately one week but may change with reservoir operating and downstream conditions.
