Bailey? What am I missing...

Riddle me this... If Waterton has 423 cfs and chutes only has 60 cfs then shouldn't Bailey/Foxton have 363 cfs?

What am I missing?

the south fork. the "chutes" gauge only reads the release from cheeseman, it doesn't account for surface (rain) runoff below the dam, which is the primary contributor to waterton right now.

no water being diverted through roberts tunnel at the moment, since Denver shuts it down when it rains. Also, look at the roberts tunnel and n. fork gauge at grant, since the normal bailey gauge is not functional right now. Grant shows some water flowing in the n.fork based only on rain. Deer Creek and other small tribs contribute too. So, all the runoff below cheeseman and robert's tunnel = waterton, but bailey is almost certainly not at a runnable flow. here's the link: Colorado Division of Water Resources

I though the Chutes gauge was the south fork of the South Platte? It only has 60 cfs which would put the rest in the North Fork, right?

ACC - nice looking camelid there. I was mountain biking Buff creek area yesterday and came back down the north fork and I would say it's just over 300 and ready to go. The run through Boulder Gardens down to Foxton road looked to be a very good level.
