From email from Reclamation (Susan Novak Behery):

Reclamation will be releasing additional water over the next two weeks to fulfill a request by the Jicarilla Apache Nation’s subcontractors, The Nature Conservancy and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission. 

The release will be increased to 900 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Saturday, September 16th , at 4:00 AM.  The release may vary slightly as weather and river flows dry out next week, but should remain near this elevated level through 4:00 AM on September 27th.
