Friday Jun 14: Increase Big Thompson Flows to 550 cfs

Friday, 14 June 0100 hours - Adjust Big T below flow from 380 cfs to 550 cfs

Thursday morning, the BOR changed the 220 cfs release to 380 cfs around 11 am - it took an hour to see the water level change at our house 6 miles down the canyon.

Sat Jun 16: BOR Changed "its" Mind

1:30 am they decided to keep the June 15 flow at 550 - the expected high flows didn't materialize.

Seems like this year they are trying to fine-tune their runoff forecasting so they can borrow as much from the Big Thompson for power generation as possible, and when it comes to how much is released through Olympus Dam from one day to the next, it comes across as very erratic.
