When will UTB get shut off?

Does anyone know when the diversion upstream of UTB will get turned on? Historically, this is around April 1?

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks for the info, man 400 cfs... We'll just have to hope for the Embudo!

Kevin,

As of now, the gauge reads 984.


USGS Current Conditions for USGS 08263500 RIO GRANDE NEAR CERRO, NM


This is the gauge we used when we ran it three weeks ago.

Kevin,

Just to clarify--that means UTB is running 548, which is low but fun.

Thanks Fullmer, 400 is the amount coming out of the diversion in the San Luis Valley which is the info I was after. We're going to save NM for another weekend and hopefully I'll be able to catch the Embudo at some point this year.

You're right, I'm sure UTB is fun at that level and more filled in than our last low water adventure. I'd like to go back around 800-1000.

Perhaps I'll see you for a paddle around Durango this weekend!

Kev

Janney and I are running Bakers today at noon. Probably a lap tomorrow, unless it drops below 350. Rally with us.
