So, as a nerdy engineer type
, I was curious how long it took a release at Chatfield to increase flow at the Union Chutes. Looking at the Chatfield release between August 23rd and 25, which ranged from about 200 to 250 cfs, it looks like it takes about 4.5 hours for flows to come up at Union as a result of a release at Chatfield, and about 4 hours for flows to come down at Union after Chatfield stops releasing.
Currently, the below Chatfield gage reads about 10.8 cfs, which is too bad 'cuz after a six pack, I think I could pee more than that.
For reference, the Chatfield gage can be viewed at:
