Lower Blue temporary BIG flow drop

All,
The rain and snow have been moving our releases to the Lower Blue around a little bit this past week, but later this morning, you will notice a significant change if you are up on the Lower Blue.

Please be WARNED: We will be shutting off releases to the Lower Blue for AN HOUR, in short order. The Lower Blue should be back to "normal" by 1 p.m. this afternoon.

We have some testing to do on the new gate installed in the pipe that brings water from the reservoir to the powerplant. Water levels in the reservoir have dropped below the spillway, so we cannot maintain flows to the Lower Blue through the spillway while we run the tests.

If you have questions or concerns, give me a holler here at (970) 962-4326 or on e-mail.

Best,
Kara

Can you please heat the water that's coming off the bottom? :P

Just kidding... thank you for keeping us updated throughout the season.

All,
No heated water, but there is water again. Flows should be around 320 cfs from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue.

Best,
Kara
