Green Mountain, Lower Blue, Labor Day
I've had a few questions about our releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Right now, we're releasing around 400 cfs. to the Lower Blue.
My guess is that the 400 will stay in place through the holiday weekend. Releases from Dillon have dropped, inflow from snow melt and rain has dropped and we've even dropped the water level elevation of the reservoir a little bit. Unless some weather event changes things, I will keep the 400 cfs as my guess for what the weekend will look like.
Have a great one!
