PG&E will increase flows in the Belden Reach from the seasonal normal flow of about 70 cubic feet per second and will gradually increase flows by no more than half a foot an hour until flows reach about 400 cfs. Later that day, PG&E will gradually decrease flows, returning to 70 cfs at about midnight.
The Belden Reach can easily accommodate increased flows up to around 2,000 cfs, which occurs during wet years.
The Belden Reach is the 8-mile portion of the North Fork of the Feather River in the Plumas National Forest between PG&E’s Belden Dam and the confluence of the North Fork of the Feather River and the East Branch of the Feather River near Highway 70.
