The Upper Colorado River Basin has received more rain. As a result, contributions from Green Mountain have been curtailed by another 50 cfs. That means the release to the lower Blue River below Green Mountain Dam is now about 315 cfs.
I do not know what changes the weather this week will bring, so be sure to check the gages before you head out that way.
Please let me know if you have any related questions.
