After yesterday's Colorado River coordination call, we made adjustments to the release from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue River. We are now releasing about 540 cfs.
As you all likely are aware, flows in the Colorado River continue to decline. In response, we have bumped our releases up another 50 cfs from 490 to 540 cfs.
The reservoir is currently at a water level elevation of 7920 feet above sea level, about 30 vertical feet down, or roughly 65% full.
It's likely the 540 cfs will remain in place through the weekend. I anticipate more changes next week, but they could come sooner. So, please keep an eye on the gages before you head out to the reservoir or the Lower Blue.
