GMR/Lower Blue update

Hey all,
Just posted this to the GMR Facebook page:

Conditions are changing and we're seeing demand on the Colorado come up. That means, we're starting to make some changes to releases from GMR to the Lower Blue. We're starting small: we'll be at 80 cfs later today and over 100 cfs tomorrow. The operators' conference call is on Wednesday, so I'll have updated info for you right before the 4th of July.

I'll keep ya posted. Look for an update here, on the FB page, and from my e-mail note by Wednesday afternoon. And don't be afraid to remind me I promised it!

Best,
Kara

Lower Blue update for July 4

Hey all,
I'm sorry to have disappointing news for those of you hoping to get on the Lower Blue for the holiday. We just have not seen the demands come up as we had thought.

As a result, we're still only releasing 80 cfs from Green Mountain Dam to the lower Blue.

There is a chance demands might come up by Saturday, but we are projecting we wouldn't see much more than 100 cfs or so out of Green Mtn. as a result.

So, that mid-July time frame I had shared with some of you is still my guess for when releases will increase.

I hope you all have a great 4th of July!
Best,
Kara

According to the AW flows the lower blue is at 215 +6/hr now. Seems up from the 120's I was seeing on there last week.

Swank,
You are right. After the call yesterday, we bumped up to 200 cfs. I sent out an e-mail and posted it on our Facebook page, but forgot to update the thread here. My apologies!

Best,
Kara
