Green Mtn/Lower Blue--dropping

Hi all,
Downstream demands on the Colorado River have been fluctuating quite a bit the last two days. Yesterday we dropped down from 145 cfs to 120 cfs. Today, March 19, we dropped again from 120 to 100 cfs. This might help us store a little water behind Green Mountain Dam.

The reason for these changes is that the Shoshone Power Plant has a relaxed call on the river and part of the Green Mountain water right is in effect.

I will keep you posted of any additional changes.

Best,
Kara

Green Mtn starts fill, releases to L Blue drop

Hey all,
Releases from dam to Lower Blue could be under 100 cfs for a while. Here's the note I just sent out:

All,

Today, April 1, 2013, we have officially started to fill Green Mountain Reservoir. Last year, the start of fill was declared about one week earlier than this year.

Currently, we are releasing around 55 cfs to the Lower Blue River. The reservoir water level elevation is about 7891 feet--roughly 50 feet down from completely full, or 39% of its total content capacity. The water level should now steadily begin to rise.

To track Green Mountain water levels and releases, please visit our website: Current Data for Green Mountain Reservoir, CO It is updated every night at midnight.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any related questions.

All the best,
Kara
