(KSL News) A lot of water will flow from Flaming Gorge dam next week.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is increasing the water flow from the dam to help endangered fish species downriver.

The increased flow is timed to mimic the spring runoff, so sediment doesn't build up on important spawning beds the endangered fish use.
