Releases to Green Mountain Cut Back
11/13/2012

Hi all,

This morning, before noon, we cut back the release from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue River. We are now releasing about 130 cfs.

We're doing our best to balance inflows and outflows. Inflow to the reservoir via the Blue River has been declining over the past week, so that's part of the reason for our change. But, we are also voluntarily participating in the Shoshone Outage Protocol--helping with Colorado River flows below the power plant just east of Glenwood Springs. So, with that in mind, we are matching our outflow to the inflow, plus 30 additional cfs.

I will send an update if there is another significant change of 40 cfs or more.

As always, feel free to contact me with any related questions.

Best,
Kara
