Lower Blue drops

All,
Recent rain throughout the state has reduced demand on water from Green Mountain Reservoir. First thing this morning (7 a.m., September 24) and again at 9 a.m, we scaled releases back by 100 cfs. The total reduction in flows is 200 cfs, scaling back from a release of 930 cfs. That means that there should be about 730 cfs in the Blue River now.

I imagine the 730 cfs will remain until Wednesday and the next coordination call, but the weather might prove me wrong. I will notify all if there are any changes. Please call or e-mail if you have concerns or questions.

Best,
Kara

Lower Blue Drops More

All,
Leave it to the weather to make a liar out of me. My prediction yesterday was completely wrong. Due to the on-going precipitation of the last couple days, we've dropped our releases more from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue.

Early this morning, we scaled back another 150 cfs, dropping us down to 580 cfs in the Lower Blue.

The 580 cfs will run in the Lower Blue until tomorrow. There is likely to be a change tomorrow after the weekly coordination call.

More soon!
--Kara

Kara,

Any update on flows for the weekend? Most of the rain has stopped here in the state, but I know the call comes from farthur downstream. Weekend looks like good warm weather, will that allow for a higher release?

Thanks,
Josh

Josh, and all,
Nope. There was no change yesterday after the Colorado River coordination call and still no change today out of Green Mountain. So, currently, the Lower Blue is still running at 580 cfs.

Since all of my predictions this week have been proven completely wrong, I'm not even going to offer a guess about what might happen tomorrow. I'll post here if there is any change, though.

Best,
Kara

All,
No change. We're still releasing about 580 cfs. Gage is reading closer to 595 cfs for Lower Blue.

Have a good weekend!
