Trinity Lake Report
6/24/22 - The lake elevation is down to 2,220' above sea level,
150' below the spillway, 30% full, only 38% of average for this date. The level is drifting down slowly now, with the snowmelt
about done — just a bit more to go in the Stuart Fork drainage. The lake is holding only 58% of its storage one year ago.
River releases are about down to their summer flows. When they
finish dumping water for the fish project, some 389,000 acre-feet will have gone down the river by water-year end, half of what
the lake held at its highwater mark this year.
The forecast for the lake level is that it may fall nearly to "power deadpool" by year-end,
which means the lake will be too low to generate any power at Trinity Dam. This occurs at elevation 2,145'.
Here is a graph
of historic lake elevation (updated 5/3) showing spillway and Trinity Center ramp elevations.
(The gaps in the line on the graph are due to missing or bad data in the state's database.)
