SSV Flow

Gage on the Flows page has been pegged at 190 for a few days now, which makes me suspicious. Especially when a buddy says he drove by last weekend and it was way low (not sure what the gage said then).

Anybody run 'er lately or at least drove by? Is that gage for reals or what???

Internet Drive by

Hey Roy,

Here are the 2 gauges we are using to calculate the flow on SSV.

http://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceWater/data/detail_graph.aspx??MTYPE=DISCHRG&ID=LYODIVCO

http://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceWater/data/detail_graph.aspx??MTYPE=DISCHRG&ID=SVCLYOCO

I also checked CRC II and it mentions that the flow is calculated from South Saint Vrain at Lyons gauge minus the North Fork.

Anyone given the canyon a drive recently?

Well, neither one of those is flatlining, so that's a good sign...

good to go today

defiantly lower than 200 but still good to go for sure, probably in the 170-180 range so really not to bony or pushy, good level still.

If you are looking for weekend flows hard to say if it will stay, probably looking at a gradual drop in flows, but that being said I was up near Brainard lake last friday and the trees at 11k feet still have a solid 2-4 feet of snow.

So planning to paddle up there tom am a lap or two.

Mike

The calculation is iffy right now for sure..it seems to have been at 190 for a couple of days now, so that is not a good sign of accuracy.

I'm with Mike, Good flow. Around the 180 - 175 range
For sure NOT 200
Looks like this could be the last weekend of good flow unless they turn off the left hand diversion (they are taking 110 cfs OUT of SSV right now)

And I quote

"it's ok if your minimums are low as long as your maximums are high"
