We are nearing full at Green Mountain Reservoir. With the snowmelt run-off finally slowing down and with operations out of Denver Water's Dillon Reservoir going east, we are seeing inflow to Green Mountain decrease. As a result, we continue to curtail our releases.

We will decrease releases to the Lower Blue later this afternoon by 100 cfs, putting the Lower Blue at about 800 cfs.

Tomorrow afternoon, we will decrease again by another 100 cfs, putting the Lower Blue at 700 cfs.

We will maintain the 700 cfs into the Fourth of July weekend, but it is possible it might drop some more. Please be sure to check the gage before you head up. Also, feel free to contact me with any related questions.

Happy a safe and happy Fourth of July!
