Kara,

Thank you again for the update on the Lower Blue! The community is grateful for the information. Do you have any insight on to how long the flows will be hovering around 900? Do you anticipate they will remain up through Memorial Weekend?

Thanks!

Lower Blue up a bit

Hey all,
This morning we bumped up to 950 cfs out of Green Mountain Dam. We're thinking it will hold at 950 cfs for a week or so, but we'll see what the weather does.

Best,
Kara

Hey all,
This morning, in two installments of 50 cfs, we're bumping releases from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue River up. By 10:00 am we should be around 1050 cfs.

THIS WEEKEND

All,
I'm so sorry I missed this. I totally overlooked Green Mountain and Lower Blue this weekend because they haven't changed much of late.

We're releasing 1250 cfs to the Lower Blue!

Best,
Kara
