A. The minimum flow is 600 CFS (cubic feet per second).
1 Cubic Foot = 7.48 gallons of water.
Water flowing at the steady rate of 1 CFS is equivalent to 449 gallons per minute or 646,000 gallons per day.
So at minimum flow, Buford Dam releases 387,600,000 gallons of water PER DAY. That's equivalent to 587 Olympic-sized swimming pools!
