NF South Platte releases

No more water for the time being, Denver Water anticipates cranking up the release once the runoff slows down in a few weeks.

No supplemental water on the NF this weekend. Natural runoff only.

No update from DWB this week, but based on the weather, I think we can expect more of the same until the rain stops.

Nothing new on the NF until the rain goes away, but the SF will continue at the current healthy flows:

"...we are still in a very rainy stretch, and will keep the tunnel off until the weather changes. Cheesman is still spilling...We are currently spilling between 550 Ė 600 cfs, with the flows dropping off a little each day."

From DWM this morning:

"With the forecast for continued showers, I donít see the Roberts Tunnel coming on for at least a week. All our South Platte reservoirs are full and spilling and I anticipate this to continue for a few days as well."

I guess we'll have a good fall season on Bailey?

Probably, but it might go down to Gore, too. That happened a few years ago, I think - most of the bigger flows were sent west rather than east.

Looks like things are starting to come up. 702+ Is this flow going to be sustained? Looks like the outflow below Dillon is dropping, are these changes related?

EDIT: My bad, this outflow is from cheesman, still nice to see increased flows.

Your link is a loop back to this same thread.

I show Bailey/Foxton still in the mid 200's suggesting not much if anything is coming out of Dillion. Where do you see 702+?

Maybe with hot temps, little rain, and the forecast above given to Caspian that this weekend might see a little release...
