2014 NFSP / Roberts Tunnel Flows

I guess its finally time to start this thread...

Denver Water turned down the tunnel today... they told me down to 200, but the graph looks like it is bottoming out at ~225. Rain dropped flows down. Prob still enough for bone zone runs but it will be below most folks min.

Warmer weather later this week could bump up flows a bit, but this higher flow period out of the tunnel will have a relatively short life I think. Get it while you can.

Got out there last friday and it was great to get in there for the first time this season. Love it!

Looks like they went even lower than 200. Good while it lasted!

Denver water bumped up the tunnel today to ~225cfs. Bailey gauge looks to be at 260-270. I was runnning it at 240-250 in the last drought year and having a good time. Nice low water late season bonus.

Denver Water thinks that they will hold the tunnel as is for the next couple of days. If demand goes up with the warmer wearther, they could bump the tunnel up by 25-50 cfs over the next couple days and give it some more juice. I'd keep an eye on the gauges over the next couple days and jump on it if it hits your min.

Note that the weather is supposed to get cold next week, and I personally think that will be it for Bailey, but I have been wrong in the past.

25 cfs bump in the tunnel up to 250. Warm weather is increasing demand, which means more tunnel for now. Looks like bailey will be in the 280-300 range which is nice low water fall boating. With fri and sat forecast to be warm, I would expect current flows, or perhaps a bit higher through the weekend. Cool weather sun and into next week will likely shut the tunnel down. Go get it while its here!

Just got this from Denver water....

Here’s a quick update on Roberts Tunnel flows –

We turned the Roberts Tunnel off yesterday. We had been running the High Line Canal, which increases demand on Denver’s system and resulted in a need for supplemental west slope water. The High Line is now off for the year. The cool, wet weather has reduced demands in Denver, and I don’t expect demand to increase enough to require supplemental Roberts Tunnel water again this year. My best estimate is we will not run the tunnel again before the spring.
