More Water Being Released from Folsom Dam

In an effort to keep salt water from entering the Delta, Nimbus and Folsom Dam are releasing an extra 2,000 cubic feet of water per second from each of the dams. In order to keep fresh water fish alive in the delta, water is needed to flow from the mountains, or else salt water creeps in to the delta. Dry weather in recent weeks have kept the water flow minimal. Folsom Dam is currently releasing 5,500 cubic feet of water per second.
