- 41 cubic feet (cfs) from November 15th through February 29th;
- 21 cfs from March 1st through May 31st; and
- 4.25 cfs from June 1st through November 14th

When it is imposed, customers will be notified via website updates/posts, Facebook posts, and automated phone calls no later than the first business day after which the stream flows meet the MWCP levels.
