Big T up for 24 hours

Just a head's up on the Big Thompson River. We'll be passing some of the run-off flows coming into Lake Estes straight to the Big T River.

Around midnight tonight (6/20), releases from Olympus Dam to the Big T will pop up to around 350 cfs. That release will run for about 24 hours. Late during the night of 6/21, we'll bring the releases back down to the normal 125 cfs.

The bump up tonight will put about 475 cfs by Drake for tomorrow. I don't know how that is for kayaking, but thought y'all might want to know in case you need to plan ahead for tomorrow afternoon.

why not release during the day only so that the water isn't wasted at night?

Thanks for the heads up! I wish there were more info coming down from yall and especially denver water. I am sure the kayaking community is appreciative for any and all info like this. Keep the water and the info coming!
p.s. I would love to work for the Bureau. I always check the job site but contact on the inside sure could help.
