Green Mountain up up up


Around 7:30 this morning, Monday June 8, we increased releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue by about 300 cfs.

Currently, there is about 1475 cfs in the Lower Blue.

Inflow to Dillon and Green Mountain Reservoirs has increased again due to run-off. We are bypassing most of that inflow on downstream. But, because the weather has been alternating between warm and cool, I do not have a projection how long these releases from Green Mountain will continue. They could go up or down, I'm just not sure.

We are also still filling the reservoir. Currently, the water elevation of Green Mountain is just under 7944--a little more than six feet below full.

P.S. In case you try to reach me over the next few weeks (aka, the rest of June!), I will pretty much be out of the office. I've got work and family issues I'm attending to. Unfortunately, run-off has not wrapped itself up, yet (so much for me planning with the weather!). I will try to get out a message if there are any significant changes, but there is the possibility I might not. So keep an eye on the gage! I will leave some back up contact information on my voice message if anyone needs it.
