    The US Army Corps has posted the 2017 Lehigh River White Water release dates.                                                                                                     

    Army Corps announces F.E. Walter Dam water release schedule > Philadelphia District > Philadelphia District News Releases                                                                                                                                  
    Planned white water release dates (24) are listed below. All other dates during the recreation season, until the weekend of October 7-8 have a planned fisheries augmentation release of at least 50 cubic feet per second if sufficient water is available.


    • May:             13, 20, 27, 28
    • June:             10, 11, 24, 25
    • July:              8, 9, 22, 23, 29, 30
    • August:         5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26*, 27*
    • September:    2*, 3*
    • October: as provided by end of year releases around the weekend of 7-8 October**

    *Releases will depend on seasonal precipitation and water accumulation. 

    **The 7-8 October weekend release is intended to provide a means of releasing any excess water that may have accumulated during the recreation season. This is the last added increment for the 2017 recreation plan.  Fisheries releases through the season will be accommodated before the final weekend (7-8 October) release will be considered.  

    The Army Corps will hold a total of 22 fishing releases and 24 whitewater release dates (four of which are dependent on additional precipitation along with fisheries enhancement releases on all other days during the recreation season). All dates are dependent on hydrologic conditions and the absence of the need for flood control operations. View full plan details.
