Dowd?

What's Dowd start running at? The lowest cfs I've heard of it run at is 500, and the lowest gauge height I've heard of it run at is 1'. I don't know what the correlation between the two is, though. Is that lower than 500? Anybody know a rough correlation between the two? Thanks.

I stopped and took a look at the Chute gage last night around 5:30pm.

I think the stick said right around 1' (it was a bit hard to see) and looking at flows around then it was running around 350cfs at the treatment plant in Avon.

It looks like it would float a boat and might have some good little surfs.

it's boatable

I live right next to it, it's been runnable for over a week. It's gay low but I've (embarassingly) paddled the chute at way lower than it is now

I have been correlating CFS to FT for a 5-6 years now. Its kinda inacurate (can vary 100 cfs at a specific height mark over the years) but gives me an idea. I would say with my feeble opinion that 1.0' is 300 cfs (1.5' is 400 1.75 is 475 cfs)

hope this helps

Cool. Anybody up for a run tomorrow (Friday) afternoon? I need to get home early evening so I'd be leaving from Golden around 11 (or Summit around 12) to get there by 1.
