Water flow levels in the Dungeness River were at their all-time recorded low Wednesday.
According to U.S. Geological Survey data, the streamflow was only 62 cubic feet per second. That’s slightly more than 25 percent of the mean streamflow of 225 cubic feet per second.
State Department of Ecology officials say the level is dangerously low for fall salmon runs which generally begin this month.
The river is not the only Peninsula waterway well below its mean streamflow.
The Elwha River was running at 284 cubic feet per second Wednesday; its mean is 436 cubic feet per second.
