NSV flows?

I would like to hit up the Proving Grounds and the zero flow shown on eddyflower doesn't seem to make sense to me, but I am admittedly not very familiar with this drainage system.

Is the NSV flowing? Specifically are the Proving Grounds?

Thanks

Ran it yesterday....

Ran it yesterday when the downstream online gauge read 433 cfs and the SSV was at 4.5. Wouldn't do it at that level again if there were any other options

We looked at SSV and Im glad we did proving grounds instead

I'm not sure you're talking about Proving Grounds. If you want flow information call 303-831-7135, press 1, then 71#. This is the flow going into Button Rock Reservoir. Proving Grounds is below this so it's only running when the reservoir is full or they're releasing water for some reason. I just called and as of 5:15pm the flow into the reservoir was 187cfs.

Is Buttonrock Spilling?

Does anyone know if if buttonrock is spilling or are the releasing out of Buttonrock? They (Guberment) shutdown the gauge for the Shellie's cottages run last year below Buttonrock, so it is hard to tell what is actually flowing, unless everything is spilling, then you should be safe to use the above buttonrock gauge for lower NSV.

I heard they doubled the release, because it was rather full. Probably moving water around the system to make efficient use of the runoff? Anyway, that is just here-say, but I've run all that stuff lower than it was Sunday if that helps you make a decision.

I am not that familiar with the hydraulics of this system but there was water on Sunday and we ran the proving grounds section.

Whether the res is full and spilling or they are discharging, I dont know. We walked inside the gate and saw water spilling over the ~30'dam, not sure if that helps determine the source

Just spoke to Shira and she said they're releasing the same amount from Button Rock that's going in which right now is 197.
