Today, we adjusted releases from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue River again.
The reason for the change was three-fold: increases in downstream contractor demand, increase in inflow, and increases in the amount required to compensate for the Colorado-Big Thompson Project diversions upstream on the Colorado River out of Granby Reservoir.
As a result, this afternoon we bumped releases up by 40 cfs. Flows in the Lower Blue are now around 190 cfs.
I'm in all day tomorrow if you have related questions.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! --Kara
