Here it is! Sorry I missed those changes, you guys! I'm on business travel.

Hi all,
As we move into fall, we're seeing some of our late season demands come on downstream of the Big Thompson River. As a result, we've been moving some water down from Pinewood, Flatiron and Lake Estes. Each reservoir has seen a slight drop in water elevation.

We have also increased releases from Lake Estes through Oly Dam. Monday night, we bumped releases up 75 cfs. Last night, we bumped up another 50 cfs. Consequently, this morning the Big Thompson through the canyon is flowing at about 200 cfs.

It is possible we could go up another 25 cfs late tonight. But, it is also likely flows will drop back down to below 100 cfs by Saturday morning when it is anticipated delivery of water down the Big T will drop off.

Please let me know if you have any related questions. It's easiest to reach me via cell phone today as I'm on business travel: (970) 215-9545.

Ran everything below Garbage Disposal but it was a tad manky for my tastes. Still fun though
