Green Mountain Releases to really bump up
Yesterday, twice today, and once tomorrow morning around 8 a.m., we are increasing our releases out of Green Mountain to the Lower Blue River. We have declared a surplus this year and need to release some water.
We bumped up from 550 to 650 cfs yesterday. This morning, we increased from 650 to 750. Around 4 p.m. today, we will increase another 100 cfs leaving the Lower Blue flowing around 850 by this evening.
We will bump up by 75 cfs tomorrow morning (Friday, August 21) putting the Lower Blue at 925 cfs for the weekend.
I'm in the office today and tomorrow if you have any related questions, concerns and etc.
Have a good weekend!
