Damn straight Sean! I was watching these stories on the news this morning and they were talking about all the $ taxpayers were going to save because the Denver City Parks are cutting back a fractional amount of the H20 they use to water grass......with all the economic issues and the fact that the snowpack has looked poor for awhile, I have to wonder why they don't cut back to these levels all the time.
To the OP, I think the river is going to peak below 1500 sometime in May. We will have releases start on July 1, but with the diminishing reservoir levels it's hard to say what that release level will be, or how long it will last.
