In accordance with Ashokan Release Interim Protocol Section 7.c. Exceptions, DEP is temporarily stopping the Ashokan Release in order to install flow-monitoring equipment in the release channel and perform engineering inspection of release channel walls. This work is expected to take 3 successive workdays. The release will be resumed at night provided it will not damage work in progress.
The installation of the flow metering equipment will improve the ability to measure future release rates. The engineering inspection will be used to develop designs for repairs to the 100 year old walls which DEP wants to perform in the near future.
