Va. dam release canceled due to higher water flows
Thursday - 6/20/2013, 11:40am EDT
COVINGTON, Va. (AP) -- A scheduled pulse release from Gathright Dam has been canceled because of higher-than-average flows in the Jackson River.
Pulse releases simulate the conditions of small flood events.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday that recent storms raised the river's flows and eliminated the need for the release.
The release was one of six scheduled this year to support a project aimed at improving the river's water quality.
The corps says in a news release that the remaining releases are still scheduled for July 23, Aug. 13, Sept. 3, Sept. 24 and Oct. 15.
