JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The release of water from Jackson Lake Dam into the Snake River is coming down.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1qOpiuK ) water managers will start cutting the release of water from the dam on Monday.

The flow has been about 1,850 cubic feet per second for the past several weeks but it will drop to about 350 cubic feet per second by the second week of October.

Mike Beus is water operations manager for the Bureau of Reclamation’s Upper Snake River Basin. He says the original flow will be reduced by about half over the first three days. He says it will then take another seven more weekdays to get the flow down to its final level.
