They are doing an inspection on the dam this morning and will start releasing this afternoon. Two weeks ago when they drained Longmont Dam Reservoir it took 5 to 6 hours to get to Lyons. The release should be 50-100 cfs.
It should be for the season. They have been holding water in Button Rock to allow a couple projects to get finished in the creek, but are supposed to be releasing what is coming in. It will vary with how runoff comes off.
They have not been fixed. No work has happened on the black bear, but some is planned above it in the near future. Some temporary work was done on the a-hole because the structure was crumbling and turning into a sieve. The a-hole right now is really just an ungrouted stack of boulders that I would be surprised if it doesn't collapse on itself during peak flows.
Does anyone run NSV from 36 to black bear?
My standard morning run last season was SSV above 1-5 to black bear. Never did NSV because of the construction but it looked to be mostly cleared out when I went up there today.
