4th of July on Lower Blue

Last night and again early this morning, we dropped releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue down by 100 cfs.

Flows last night dropped to 750 cfs. With the decline again this morning, flows in the Lower Blue today should be around 650 cfs.

Run off is definitely flattening out, now, and inflows to the reservoir have really dropped off.

Even though tomorrow is a major holiday, there is still the possibility that we could drop releases down some more. If you are planning on getting up to the Lower Blue for some 4th of July fishing or boating, please be sure to check the gage before you go. Changes would most likely occur late this evening and/or early tomorrow morning.

Have a safe and fun 4th of July!
