Ah, well. It figures. I hoped I could be of more help. We have nothing to do with water above Twin Lakes Reservoir. While we own the reservoir, dam, and powerplant, we do not own all the storage space in Twin Lakes (nor the majority of the land it sits on. That's the Forest Service). The Twin Lakes Canal Company still owns and contracts out major storage in Twin Lakes Reservoir. I believe they also have a tunnel or canal, possibly, that brings water from the west slope. But, I'm not sure if that impacts Lake Creek above the dam and reservoir. I'll have to ask them.
When we move water through the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project into Twin Lakes, we bring it down from the Mount Elbert Forebay and through the powerplant. At night, we pump the water back up to the Forebay and generate with it again. So, for lake levels at both Twin Lakes and the Forebay, I can be helpful--and also with releases to Lake Creek below the dam and down the Arkansas (especially during the Flow Program in summer). But not upstream. So, sorry about that. On the other hand, please don't hesitate to give me a holler on the reservoirs, if need be.
