Green Mountain update

Hi all,

If you've been over by the dam today, you have probably noticed that we have been bumping up releases over the past day or so. We are running some test of the hydro-electric generating units at Green Mountain Dam. We will bump up to a release of 750 cfs by Sunday morning, then bring the releases back down again. All increases and decreases will be in 100 cfs intervals.

Yesterday, Thursday, we bumped up from a release of 100 cfs to 200cfs.

Early this morning, we bumped up from 200 to 300 cfs. At noon, we bumped up another 100 cfs to 400.

Tomorrow morning, we will bump up to 500 cfs, followed by another increase to 600 cfs at noon.

On Sunday, we will bump up to 750 cfs at 8:00 a.m. We will start decreasing the release at noon, dropping back to 600 cfs.

Monday morning, we will drop another 100 cfs to 500; then down to 400 cfs by noon.

Tuesday, we will drop to 300 cfs early in the morning, down to 200 cfs by noon. And back to 100 cfs by 1:00 p.m.
As always, please let me know if you have any related questions or concerns. I'm on cell phone today at (970) 215-9545.
