Lower Blue ramping up again

All,
The DOW will conclude their fish-shocking work in Gore Canyon tomorrow, April 29. As a result, we will start ramping Green Mountain releases back up tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. Increases will be made in 50 cfs increments, twice a day, through the weekend.


The schedule will be the same as before. Changes will be made at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


Currently, releases from the dam are about 500 cfs.They will go to 600 cfs Friday, 700 cfs Saturday, and level out around 800 cfs by Sunday evening.


We will be in Frisco presenting run-off information on Tuesday, May 3. We are participating in the River District's annual State of the River meeting for the Blue River.

Learn more about this meeting at Calendar of Events.


Learn more about our operations at Reclamation: GP Area Offices, Reclamation: Great Plains Region; and for snow pack and reservoir levels: Current Reservior Content and Snowpack Using Google Maps.


Also, as always, please feel free to call me with any additional questions.


Best,
Kara

You know, I'm not sure about shocking reports. DOW will have that information. I'd give them a call--but I'm not sure which phone number to recommend. Is anyone from DOW on-line this morning? If so, please advise!

Thanks,
Kara

Lower Blue going up more for weekend

Hey all,
Tomorrow morning we'll start ramping up releases again from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue. This time, we're ramping in 100 cfs increments.

The first change will be at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow, May 5. That will put us at 900 cfs. Tomorrow afternoon around 6 p.m., we'll go up another 100, putting 1000 down the Lower Blue.

Two similar changes will happen at those same times on Friday, May 6. This means by the weekend, we will be releasing 1200 cfs to the Lower Blue.

We're trying to make room in the reservoir for snow melt.

As always, please e-mail or call if you have questions.

Best,
Kara

Sweet! I think 1200 is enough justification to come run laps on the Lower Blue. Thanks once again Kara!
