The last few feet of draw down of water from Ashton Reservoir should be completed this week. Turbidity in the river below the dam continues because of by-pass tunnel construction which will continue through the week. The river is cutting a new channel in the upper end of the reservoir adding fines to the river below. After draw down and tunnel construction are completed, look for improved water quality in the river below. The Henry’s Fork Foundation (www.henrysfork .org) publishes progress and observation reports on the Ashton Dam construction regularly.
