Please note that the forecasts only take into account rain on the ground. As a result, the forecasts are subject to change as soon as any type of rain event occurs.
If you are near the dam and hear the siren sound, you should prepare for a rapid change in water levels, because the siren signals that the amount of water being released is going to rapidly change. Boaters are also cautioned not to cross the buoy line at the intake structure as doing so puts you and the passengers in your boat in danger.
