Green Mountain releases
This morning we began scaling back releases from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue. We dropped 150 cfs this morning. Currently, there should be about 650 cfs in the Lower Blue.
This afternoon around 4 p.m., we will drop releases by another 150 cfs, brining the Lower Blue to 500 cfs through tonight.
Tomorrow morning, we will drop releases again, this time by 100 cfs. Putting the Lower Blue at 400 cfs through the day.
At 4 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, we will drop releases for the last time by one more 100 cfs increment, leaving it at 300 cfs by the end of Wednesday night and through the weekend.
As always, please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I'll be on my cell phone today and tomorrow: (970) 215-9545.
