Thermal Release Request

Today’s NWS forecast for Hancock is mostly sunny with an expected high of 90F. Binghamton is expected to be 91F and partly sunny. Tomorrow’s expected high air temperature in Hancock is 90F with mostly sunny skies preceded by an overnight low of 67F. Binghamton’s forecast for Tuesday is 89F and mostly sunny preceded by a low of 70F.

The current Cannonsville release is 550 cfs due to yesterday’s request from the Thermal Release Bank.

Due to the potential of elevated water temperatures on the East Branch and Neversink, NYSDEC also requests an increase of 20 cfs to be made from both Pepacton and Neversink reservoirs from 4:00 PM Monday through 3:59 PM Tuesday.

Thank you for your continued assistance in implementing the thermal protection bank.
