I just heard from Kara, she's at another agency but still keeps tabs with the BOR office where she used to work. As Logan speculated, due to sequestration, her position has not been filled. Not only that but a senior water engineer also left who was heavily involved with flows forecasting.
So getting someone to communicate to us what's going on with Blue, Big Thompson, & other releases will be like going to someone who's already been asked to "do more with less" and take on one more thing that's not in their regular to do list.
In her parting words on Blue releases, she said:
I think the main thing for Buzzards to remember is that Green Mountain has that late run pattern. The ag users downstream typically seem to hold out their calls until September and October. So, traditionally, but not always, the highest flows seem to be during runoff and in late summer/early fall.
Hopefully she'll be able to find someone at the BOR to be the Buzz liason.
