All,

We have another change at Green Mountain Dam. As has been typical the last six or so
weeks, we are seeing operational changes at the dam about every three to four days.

In collaboration with other reservoir operators, we continue to follow Mother
Nature's storms, adjusting releases as we go. Recent rains have boosted flows in the
Colorado River slightly, so we have been asked to cut back our releases from the dam
to the Lower Blue.

Around 11 a.m. today, August 13, we cut back by 50 cfs, to about 330 cfs. The Lower
Blue River should now be running at about 330 cfs.

More on Colorado-Big Thompson Project reservoirs is available on our webpages
(www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao), or please just give me a call or e-mail if you have
additional questions.

Best,
Kara
