Yup .... we need it. Its been relatively dry.
I would think that they would open it more If its low. Is this because they fear the lake water would drop also? [confused]Musky is realy low, and state has cut the water flow from Hopatcong to the lowest allowed by law
Last fall was a 5 year draw down of the lake so folks can repair boat docks. The dry winter has kept the lake from filling back up and it's still nearly 4 feet down. State Parks worked out a flow agreement with F&W below the 12 cfs that is called for after the draw down. Parks is supposed to give the upper river 8.2 cfs right now, and they keep closing the valve back and I keep yelling at them to protect the upper river. I usually guilt them into going back to 8.3 or so. Local business owners are wanting zero release so the lake will fill faster, but even at that it will take over 6 months to fill unless we continue to see good rains. Feb. was one of the driest Februarys ever on record.I would think that they would open it more If its low. Is this because they fear the lake water would drop also
Cubic feet per second as pertains to the release of water in this instance.What is cfs?
