After briefly leveling off at 40,000 cubic feet per second, the in-flow of water at Lake Red Rock is expected to continue to decrease in the coming days. That’s according to the latest forecast from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which anticipates in-flow to the reservoir to decrease to near 35,000 cubic feet per second by Sunday.

Out-flow at the dam, meanwhile remains at 51,000 cubic feet per second as the lake’s level continues to slowly recede. As of 5:00 a.m. Saturday, the water level at Lake Red Rock was at 777.50 feet – down around 5 inches in the past 24 hours.
