What is the calculation again for Left Hand? The teacups look like they are flowing.

Seems low still.. Could be a good time to "look" at it. But who wants to work when so much is flowing?

Here is some wisdom from Ed Clark, some of which I put into a "trip report" on the eddyflower run description, so I could find it again (surprised to see that it hasn't been lost or deleted yet):
"Use the gauge below the power plant minus the Electric Lake flow as the primary indicator." "The waterfall above the confluence has been done with 20 cfs out of Miller flat."

http://www.eddyflower.com/Forum.aspx?ForumId=2&postid=2929#2929
"Add Miller, plus the outflow from Rolfson, Huntington and Cleveland. This means that the flow through LFH is about 75 maybe a bit more as base flow contributes through the canyon. (10-15 cfs). The good news would be that Miller Flat creek is runnable including the last 8-ft drop and the slide into the confluence. Everything below should be scrapey, but runnable to the take out. Personally, I'd take a play boat for ease in portage. The gage below the power plant, minus the diversion and electric Lake should give you good idea if it's adding up properly.
===
Multiply gpm by 0.00223 to get cfs. So both powerplant diversions are totalling 16 cfs right now (7200 gpm).
===
So right now the first calc would give ~59cfs (plus 16 for diversion? not sure about that part). Adding the 4 outflows at the top (second calc method) would give ~34.
Sounds scrapey but doable at ~75 by the second calc method, with 20 cfs out of Miller Flat as a minimum; others would know better than I what a decent minimum flow is.

I'd imagine if you don't have a snowmobile it would be really hard to get to...
