Barker Res Spill? 2019

Can't wait to get on the Boulder Town Run. In 2011 we ran BC on 7/4 and watched the fireworks from the park. Anyone got an eye on Barker and thoughts on when it'll spill?

Thanks,

-AH

Yep, 3' to go, flows into Barker are picking up, 136cfs currently. The dam manager this weekend thought it would go by Thursday, we will see. Interesting that the North Fork boulder Creek hasn't really picked up yet either, must be plumbing from Lakewood res to Betasso for Boulder water?

Not traditionally, it's always been visual.

As a reminder, 119 is having all kinds of work done on it, if you plan to go up canyon, daily closures and delays, it can be a real pain in the a$$.

Has anyone been down from Eben G Fine to 30th? Any trees? Is the construction site at Arapahoe totally clear?

There maybe one tree in the lower part, but we got around it. The construction site is clear, but not impressed with how they changed the creek. There was a considerable amount of wood floating around the edges and in eddies, that will be moving.

Thanks Chief! Is the Town Run good to go for rafts?

Not sure how to answer that question. Here is the gauge https://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceW...&MTYPE=DISCHRG

My notes say 580 cfs on the Orodell gauge is The bottom end of good for our 14’ raft. 600+ is padded and fun. Looks like it’s getting close for a raft depending on your tolerance for some hang ups and boat abuse. That also doesn’t account for whatever the new situation is at Arapahoe.
