St Vrain Flows NSV / SSV

Talked to the water guys today. They bumped up buttonrock releases into NSV from 100 to 175 cfs on sunday. They plan to drop it back to 150 cfs today.

SSV was reported to be 4" on the stick gauge in town yesterday, which is a good to go minimum for me.

Left Hand Ditch Co has their headgate open, so they are sucking out as much as they can from SSV near Ward even though the online gague is not operating yet. The left hand diversion has been open during the entire recent flow period.

Thought I would post this up, as I use it to try and figure out what SSV is doing.

P.S. Full contact mank has been soooo good lately. Love it!

"Full contact mank" and "soooo good," should never be spoken together again...

Ian, go throw a sheet of plywood over the Left Hand diversion...especially if their gauge isn't up they won't notice it for a little bit longer.

"Full contact mank" and "so good" were typed not spoken, so I guess I'm all good, but otherwise don't piss on my mank-wheaties!

You're missing out Evan. Embrace the mank. It's a good way to ensure a boat warranty
