Lower Blue going up some more

Hi all,
This morning (April 14), we began raising releases from Green Mountain Dam in what will be two days (today and tomorrow) of stepped increases. Releases will be made in 50 cfs increments.

This morning's release brought the Lower Blue up to 550 cfs. Tonight around 8 p.m., we will step up again, putting about 600 cfs. in the river.

Similarly, Friday around 8 a.m. another 50 cfs increase will put the Lower Blue at 650 cfs. Then at 8 p.m., we will bump up 50 more cfs to 700 cfs.

The 700 cfs will stay in place until the next change--the timing of which is dependent on weather and inflow to the reservoir.

As before, these increased releases are part of our balancing inflow and storage with what we are anticipating will be a busy run-off season.

We plan on spending time in May on the public meeting circuit, sharing our projections for run-off. Last night, we presented our projections for Granby and Willow Creek releases, and a little on Green Mountain, in Granby, Colo. Our next stop will be Tuesday, May 3 at the River District's annual State of the River meeting for the Blue River (including Green Mountain). That will be in Frisco--visit Calendar of Events for more information. We might have some other meetings, as well. I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, if you would like a copy of our presentations, please let me know. Please keep in mind, though, that the data we present at public meetings is all projection and subject to change.

Other Reclamation data on snow pack and reservoir water levels is available at:Current Reservior Content and Snowpack Using Google Maps or Reclamation: Great Plains Region.

I remain available via phone or e-mail if you have other related questions.

Have a safe season!
