What's up with Bear... is there a rez upstream of morrison?

That gauge hasn't budged which lends to me that there has to be a low head damn up above that isn't done filling up.

Can anyone confirm?

It's flowing out of Evergreen Lake about the same as it is coming in. Don't know about diversions above that.

Like it or not, all of us are the result of a sexual act.

Evergreen lake is tiny so it probably doesn't impact flow very much. Bear creek's flow has always been a bit erratic. It depends on snowmelt and rainfall almost exclusively on the east flank of Mount Evans, so it depends on what is going on up there. However, the South Platt basin guages in general haven't blipped much despite the hot weather, so its probably all soaking in. Within a week or two though, that should change.

Give it some time, I've lived in Evergreen my entire life and have never seen a spring when Bear Creek hasn't come up at least a little. Its still early and I would bet it will come up eventually with more snow-melt off of Mt. Evans, Beirstead etc. As for diversions / dams, I don't think the monstrosity that will feed Gennessee is done yet but it might be.

They have not started the damn project. They cannot find anyone who can meet the bid for it.

Also even though it has been warm during the day up here. It is still pretty chilly at night. Once it startes to get warm at night it should start flowing.
