Click on the dam desired. For instance, click on Wheeler, and "View all release information. Look at the "Unstream levels" for above Wheeler, and "Downstream levels" for below Wheeler. You must look at when they will be running the turbines also to predict the levels. For instance, if they will be shutting off the turbines at a certain time, expect the level to start dropping, but not always. The next dam below might not shut off for a few more hours later. Then expect the level to drop sharply. You can see the levels for about 8 hours previous. Level is a hard thing to predict sometimes. If it is raining, expect the level to start rising for a few days. For instance, Wheeler is up at about summer level right now, but with no rain for the next few days, expect Wheeler lake to gradually start dropping back down to their desired levels for this time of year. You can go to the lake level Excel charts on the NAFF home page to see the prediction. Hope this helps.
