Green Mountain adjustments

Yesterday, we adjusted the release from Green Mountain Dam to the lower Blue River.
We dropped it by about 50 cfs. By yesterday afternoon, the lower Blue was running
around 415 cfs.

As this dry summer goes on, our weekly adjustments to releases from Green Mountain
Dam will continue. We are in constant collaboration with the State and other
reservoir operators whose releases also contribute to the Colorado River. We work
together, adjusting flows as we go. With that in mind, it will not be unusual this
summer to see two, or possibly more, changes in one week to our releases from the
dam to the lower Blue River. Just keep an eye on the gages.

Please let me know if you have any related questions.

Best,
Kara
