Probably a gauge malfunction. I checked this gauge for granite and its pretty stable at 65 cfs. So probably 100 cfs in the numbers.

The "below Granite" gauge has been malfunctioning since they turned it back on at the beginning of the month. It needs to be physically re-calibrated. Don't trust it. If you are looking for accurate flows for Pine Creek and Numbers at the moment take the Granite gauge and add the outflow from Clear Creek Reservoir. All gauges can be found at this site:
