Today, we scaled back releases from Green Mountain Dam to the Lower Blue River by about 40 cfs. As we move into the winter season, inflows to Green Mountain Reservoir are naturally declining. Denver Water has also cut back releases from Dillon Dam, upstream on the Blue.
As a result, the flow in the Lower Blue is now about 280 cfs and the reservoir is roughly 63% full.
Please let me know if you have any related questions and have a great Thanksgiving!
