From email from Reclamation (Susan Novak Behery):

At 9:00 AM on April 20th (Thursday), the release at Navajo Dam will be transferred to the 4×4 Auxiliary outlet for a period of 2 hours to allow for SCADA testing.  During this time, the release volume will not change. The release will be transferred back to the power plant after the 2-hour test has concluded. You may expect some silt and discoloration downstream in the river during this time due to the location of the 4×4.
