Green Mountain update

Hi all,

Starting tomorrow, we will be increasing releases from Green Mountain Reservoir to the Lower Blue River in 25 cfs increments. Like the increase the other week, this bump up in releases is in anticipation of late spring run off from the large snow pack currently reported in the Blue River Basin.

The release increases will occur around 8 a.m. in the morning tomorrow, Thursday, March 3, Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5. By late afternoon Saturday morning, flows in the Lower Blue below the dam should be around 275 cfs.

At this time, Green Mountain Reservoir is sitting at a water level elevation of 7901--that's about 49 vertical feet from full. However, that's about six feet higher than where we'd like the reservoir to be in late spring when run-off starts to come down. We'd like to start the run-off season closer to 7895.

Please let me know if you have any related questions or concerns. I am reachable via e-mail or phone, as usual.
