    Default Butla Water Level

    It's still above rule curve and they closed the spillway on Monday. Anybody know why?

    Not sure, but with no rain really to speak of in the forecast I say it was a smart move, this sun and heat will take care of that 3 feet in no time via evaporation.

    Got a call about that yesterday. Only thing I can figure is either something to do on dam gate or having to do something down river. Normally they might slow it down to a trickle but not shut it completely of without a real good reason.

    Probably the 5 yr. shut down, inspect and maint. cycle that all the spillway outlets are on. Normally takes a month or so to complete.
