Releases from dam to Lower Blue could be under 100 cfs for a while. Here's the note I just sent out:
Today, April 1, 2013, we have officially started to fill Green Mountain Reservoir. Last year, the start of fill was declared about one week earlier than this year.
Currently, we are releasing around 55 cfs to the Lower Blue River. The reservoir water level elevation is about 7891 feet--roughly 50 feet down from completely full, or 39% of its total content capacity. The water level should now steadily begin to rise.
To track Green Mountain water levels and releases, please visit our website: Current Data for Green Mountain Reservoir, CO
It is updated every night at midnight.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any related questions.
All the best,
