The graph below shows how actual water releases from the Claytor Dam affect the past, current and projected water levels at the location listed below.

Normally, water released from the dam takes about 21 hours to arrive at Narrows. The forecasted information is an estimate and is based on actual releases from the Claytor Dam. The graph does not show forecast water releases from the dam, but instead shows when a release that has occurred is expected to reach a destination downstream.

The graph does not reflect additional weather events or inflows from other tributaries that feed into the New River upstream from this location.
