Green Mountain releases over weekend

Hi all,
Some of you might have noticed that Green Mountain had a sudden decrease in release early Saturday morning, dropping from about 900 cfs to 700 cfs. That is because we had one of the two units in our power plant trip off line.

The guys are working on it now and we hope to have it back up in a day or two. Meanwhile, the 700 cfs release will be made through the one unit at the plant at the foot of the dam.
