...THE FLOOD ADVISORY FOR SNOWMELT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 945 AM PDT  
THURSDAY FOR PLACER COUNTY...  
 
* INCREASED RELEASES FROM LAKE TAHOE WILL CONTINUE FOR A PROLONGED  
PERIOD OF TIME. THIS IS BEING DONE TO MAKE ROOM FOR FUTURE  
SNOWMELT FROM A NEAR RECORD SNOWPACK IN THE TAHOE BASIN.  
 
* MINOR FLOODING IS EXPECTED ALONG SECTIONS OF THE TRUCKEE RIVER  
BETWEEN LAKE TAHOE AND SQUAW CREEK. BELOW SQUAW CREEK...FLOWS ON  
THE RIVER WILL BE EVEN HIGHER DUE TO SNOWMELT RUNOFF FROM LOCAL  
TRIBUTARIES. THIS MAY CAUSE SOME VERY MINOR FLOODING NEAR THE  
RIVER JUST ABOVE THE CITY OF TRUCKEE AS WELL.  
 
* LOCATIONS IMPACTED INCLUDE THE BIKE PATH AND OTHER LOW LYING AREAS  
FROM LAKE TAHOE TO JUST BELOW SQUAW CREEK.  
 
* THIS WILL BE THE HIGHEST FLOW EXPERIENCED ON THIS SECTION OF THE  
TRUCKEE RIVER SINCE THE SUMMER OF 2006. ANY CHANGES TO, OR AROUND,  
THE RIVER CHANNEL SINCE 2006 MAY RESULT IN UNANTICIPATED IMPACTS.  
 
* THESE FLOWS WILL RESULT IN VERY POWERFUL, FAST, AND COLD  
CONDITIONS THAT WILL BE VERY HAZARDOUS. KEEP PEOPLE, PETS, AND  
PROPERTY CLEAR FOR SAFETY.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
STAY AWAY OR BE SWEPT AWAY. RIVER BANKS AND CULVERTS CAN BECOME  
UNSTABLE AND UNSAFE. THE COLD TEMPERATURES OF  
THE WATER WILL RESULT IN RAPID ONSET OF HYPOTHERMIA.
