Lower Blue flows over next several days

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that they're bumping up flows on the Lower Blue to 1450 cfs for roughly the next five days, then they'll be dropping them back down to 850.

You sure it's the Lower Blue? The Upper Blue (coming out of Dillon Res) seems to be on the rise for the last hour or two, but the Lower Blue (coming out of Green Mtn Res) is holding steady.

Yeah, I mean, I'm pretty sure the Lower Blue comes out of Green Mountain Res.....


Green Mountain Reservoir will increase releases to the Blue River. Green Mountain Reservoir is increasing releases to augment peak flows within the Colorado River as part of the Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program, Coordinated Reservoir Operations (CROS). Green Mountain Reservoir will increase flows to power plant capacity of approximately 1450 cfs in approximately 100 cfs steps. Green Mountain releases are expected to maintain capacity releases for approximately 5 days before returning to approximately 850 cfs. All releases will be through the power plant. Please see attached water order for additional details.

Cool - sometimes people call the part coming out of Dillon the lower, and the part coming from breck INTO Dillon the upper, so just wanted to clarify. Thanks for the heads up!

Agreed, but it's nice to have Soggy at least filling in. Thanks for the info!

No worries! I missed Kara's updates too, so I called around until I found someone willing to put me on the mailing list for the water orders.

Hope everyone's enjoying the high flows around the state!

Hi Soggy,

Any update on what the lower blue might look like over the next few days?

Thanks.
