Lower Blue dropping more
Yesterday, Sunday July 27, we dropped releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue by 200 cfs. That put 600 cfs in the river early this morning.
Today, we are dropping AGAIN. We will cut releases back by another 100 cfs.
That means by late this afternoon, we'll be running about 500 cfs out of the dam to the Lower Blue.
I expect, as inflows continue to drop off, we'll see it drop even more this week.
