Whitewater Release on Salmon River Canceled Labor Day Weekend

ALTMAR, NY (August 24, 2012) — Brookfield Renewable Energy Group has announced that the whitewater recreation release on the Salmon River (South) scheduled for September 2 – 3 is canceled due to lower than normal reservoir water levels during this time of year. The decision

to cancel is based on input from members of the Flow Management Advisory Team regarding the adverse impact that the flow increase would have upon an already low reservoir level and the possible effect upon sustaining spawning season flow requirements.

Thank you for your patience during these low water level conditions.

Whether rain or shine,Brookfieldstrongly urges the public to be safe by observing all signage, sirens and barriers and to wear a personal flotation device when recreating on or near water.

Remember to Wear It New York! Always check water conditions before you recreate. One source is www.h2online.com.
