The overall water supply forecasts for May to September decreased slightly, mostly for May and June. Due to continued dry basin conditions, project outflows are historically low. However, with the recent precipitation and cooler weather the lake is on track to fill within the top foot by early to mid-June.

SKQ project outflows and the Flathead Lake elevation are dependent on many variables including lake inflows, weather, the demand for electricity, and non-power constraints such as the downstream fishery and flood risk management needs.
