AW Releases Southeast River-release schedule for 2018


Coming soon to a Southeast waterway near you!
Over the past two decades American Whitewater has worked with affiliate clubs and partners to negotiate an array of scheduled releases on river reaches previously de-watered by hydropower dams.

Each year it helps schedule these releases in an integrated manner that aims to maximize their recreational value. For every Class IV and V release it has negotiated in the region, AW also secured more Class II and III releases on rivers like the Tuck, Nantahala, Catawba, and Hiwassee. It also wants to thank all the volunteers helping pull off the Tallulah releases, NOC for its free shuttles on the Upper Nantahala, and the Forest Service for their support.

Below is this year's schedule (note: check the power company's website for updates on the Cheoah, West Fork Tuckasegee and Upper Nantahala).
