No spills coming anytime soon and if one is going to come it will be short lived a couple days max. Dolores Water Conservancy District

Outlooks are calling for cool weather for the NW to continue into next week. MIDI1 Hydrograph shows an increase starting next week.

A peak over 4 should still happen. Getting 3 thru June depends on rain, it won't happen from this years snowpack, see

So you don't think Slick Rock to Bed Rock will run again this year? Does the Dam need to release water for this section to run good? Did most of the water come from the San Miguel a few weeks ago?
