Will extending the season lower the seasonal peak, though?

That sounds great, a longer season and stable economic gains closer to an annual basis for the county. [/b]BUT I am with count, that makes the peak season very minimal unless we get a rediculous amount of snow in the winter (everyone pray to uller for that one). Though flows will be consistant throughout the season accept for an 8 day period between a 2 month window that could suck for high water prospects especially for rafting companies in the area. Hmmmmm. I am a realist and am aware that you have to give a little to get a little. I will miss hitting up the Ark with it running @ 3-4,000 cfs. Steve Z

They dont release, or suppliment the flows while runoff is happening.

Natural flow will still be natural flow, cant see how this would affect any peak flows.

Suppliments probably means like maintaining 700 cfs as long as they can, plus the million other elements water rights in Colorado are contingent on.

I'm a little skeptical. It says that they will maintain flows if the water is available and without senior water rights demanding it. That like George saying, "we're leaving iraq" and then whispering "when the insurgents stop bombing each other".

That being said, I really hope it's true that the ark holds at 700 from march to nov - I'll be moving there shortly if it's the case.
