Green Mountain/Lower Blue

All,
At 11:30 this morning, we made an adjustment in the releases from Green Mountain Reservoir to the Lower Blue. We scaled back by 100 cfs from 1050 to 950. The primary reason for the change is that inflow to the reservoir has dropped off.



The Lower Blue is now at 950 cfs. My guess is it will remain at this rate until the Wednesday morning conference call. After that, it's anyone's guess.


I'm available by phone and e-mail today, tomorrow and Thursday. I'll post any changes as soon as I learn of them. Feel free to contact me if you have related questions or concerns.


Have a good week,
Kara

Any guesses as to whether or not we'll get a big T release this fall? As always, thanks for your updates!

MOre on Green Mountain

All,
A change at Green Mountain has come again, a day earlier than I thought. Similar to yesterday, we adjusted our release to better reflect what is coming into the reservoir. As a result, we dropped releases from Green Mountain Reservoir to the Lower Blue by 100 cfs earlier today.



The Lower Blue is now flowing at about 850 cfs.



I'm out tomorrow, but will be back in the office on Thursday if you have any related questions or concerns.



Best,
Kara


P.S. For those who were asking: I don't expect to see any high flows on the Big T this fall. If you think that is worthy of a separate post here on the Buzz, please let me know.

Hey Kara, when you say high what do you mean? Like 600, 800? What are the chances we'll see 400?

Feel free to start another post on this.

Thanks, Bob
