It has been determined that releases from Green Mountain should increase. The Bureau of Reclamation has been releasing about 400 cfs for some time. The change will put 500 cfs in the lower Blue River.

The first change was September 22. Today, Friday, the releases will be bumped up another 50 cfs around 8 a.m. By lunch, there should be 500 cfs in the river.

This increase will help provide water to the critical habitat of the endangered fish of the Colorado River.
