After the weekly coordination call today, we have made another change at Green Mountain Dam. We have dropped releases down to about 380 cfs in the Lower Blue River.
Green Mountain Reservoir is currently at a water level elevation of about 7915 feet, or roughly 60% full. Considering the reservoir only got to an elevation of 7928 feet this year, that means it has dropped about 13 vertical feet since late June.
Afternoon rains storms have helped bump up the Colorado River slightly. We, and other reservoir operators around the basin, continue to work together to do our best to balance flows in the region.
Please let me know if you have any related questions.
