Any word about this? Is ACE going to ensure water levels are over 1k again?

I have to plan my outings well in advance so I figured this might work.

I'm was thinking of coming down to help with a rather large group, most in rafts, but nobody knows if there's going to be any water?  Is there a user group of webpage with details?

There will be water.

LOW water.

River levels are not expected to be much different from where they are now. But the cleanup will go on. There will be boats on the water picking up trash, but it will be mostly small boats, especially in the upper gorge. Also: Ground crews are always needed. The trails and woods around the river need cleaning up as much or more than the river bed does.

For details and updates:

I thinking about taking the ducky down the upper if its super low, but the hardshell if the level is over 700-800... Probably be there around 11am or so.

Sorry Davie. I can't I got a kids bday party today and since I'm gonna boat in two weekends from now I need to stay around.

Oh and usgs has nothing to do with level regulations I believe it is ACE for the green.

Going to the Wenatchee and Icicle. Gonna take my mountain bike and park bike too to ride in leavenworth. The more the merrier, let me know if you wanna head out with me. I am probably going to leave either Thursday night or Friday, maybe hit the cooper on the way over then be in the area on Sat. Morning. I am open to other plans too.
