Historic Water Right Delivered To Park

Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park

National Park News

The largest water right volume since a court-adjudicated decree in 2008 was delivered to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park on June 8th.

Nearly 8,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water was pushed through Crystal Dam and sent over the spillway. After 1,000 cfs was diverted through the Gunnison Tunnel below the dam, approximately 7,000 cfs made its way through the Black Canyon for a 24 hour peak flow. The flow approximates a natural hydrograph, helping to restore natural processes in the canyon. 

Epic snow pack in the high country contributed to the healthy flow.
