Lower Blue, Big T releases crank up, inch down

All,
It's the rain in some places and the lack of rain in others driving our releases up and down.

Yesterday through staging of five separate release increases of 50-100 cfs each, the Lower Blue popped up to around 950 cfs. Today, as the rain started to move out of the area, we began decreasing releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue.

By this evening, the Lower Blue should drop by 100 cfs down to 850.

On the Big Thompson, flows have been bumping up all weekend because of the rain. We will bump releases from Olympus Dam up more tonight (around 2 a.m.) to about 550 cfs. We'll run that through Tuesday and probably start cutting back again on Wednesday.

It's good in the mountains and dry on the plains--unless you're down around Pueblo.

As always, call/e-mail/post with any questions or concerns.
Best,
Kara

Oh for Pete's sake. We're bumping releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue back up.

Apparently rain has enabled Denver Water to cut back on their diversions from Dillon to the east slope. That will pop up their release to the Blue River, increase inflow to Green Mountain, and bump our releases to the Lower Blue up a little bit.

We're looking at 925 cfs back in the Lower Blue this evening.

But, I'm sure it will change again as soon as someone makes travel plans.
