Big Thompson, Colorado

Hi all,
We have dropped our releases to the Big T back in the 100 cfs. I'm anticipating that release rate will stay in place--at least until the next batch of snow in the high country comes down.

Best,
Kara

Kara,

Looks like the Big Thompson just shot up to over 450 cfs. Any idea how long these flows will be in place?

Afox,
It did! I was busy with some other things and didn't get my note out ahead of time. Here it is:

All,
About an hour ago, we increased releases from Olympus Dam to about 450 cfs--an increase of about 250 cfs. We are bypassing some of the runoff from last night's rain above the Estes Park area. If more rain materializes today, it is possible we could maintain the 450 cfs into the weekend. If the heat continues, we could scale releases back tonight.

As always, recreators should keep an eye on the gage before going up to the river as the conditions are subject to change. I will be in the office all day today if you have any related questions.

A happy and safe Fourth of July to you all!

Best,
Kara
