A release of water from Alamo Lake swelled the Bill Williams River this week as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers prepared for maintenance and repairs on the dam.
The maximum flow on the Bill Williams was seen Thursday, with around 5000 cubic feet per second coming through the dam. A sharp drop-off in flow is planned for the latter part of the week. The flow was designed to mimic a natural flood event.
Parker Live‘s video and photographs were taken at the Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge and Planet Ranch.
