The Ark... wtf?

So all of you in the know, what the f is up with the ark? Looked like it was climbing this morning and now dropping out again. I know you guys blew through a lot of your water early on, just like the Animas did, but is this it? Are they gonna bump it back up for weekends or is it just done?

This is a good site for what is going on with the Ark water flows. (It hasn't been updated most of the summer, but seems like they are starting to update more regularly.):

WaterFlow Announcements

Looks like there will be an increase of 50 on Friday at 6pm. From above site, posted today: "The Pueblo Board of Water Works will begin releasing 50.42 cfs from Clear Creek Reservoir to Pueblo on Friday, July 9 at 6:00 p.m. This will continue until further notice."

Not a lot of water, but information at least.


Also states they dropped it 300 cfs last week in two increments of 150.

It is 700 on the Wellsville gauge, not #'s gauge. Numbers is already down to 560

That release is probably just to meet the agreed upon 700 at the wellsville gauge until 8/15

Whatever. You surface choads have had your highwater for long enough. We've been waiting patiently for the ark to hit proper levels all season. The best play at said level = THIS.
