Pumps High, Water going Low – Heat coming up

Daily Average

As you see in the graph, PacifiCorp started pumping with some full-on ups and full-off downs and then settled out around 325 cfs. this is the general capacity of one of the Lifton pumps. June 1 they began to bring on one additional pump every few days to try to catch up with the irrigation demands. This graph is a good illustration of how the pumping systems works to take water out of the lake.
