We have increased releases twice from Green Mountain since my note yesterday. Yesterday afternoon, we went up to about 1400 cfs. This morning around 9 a.m. we went up to about 1600 cfs. We are still storing in Green Mountain Reservoir. It is 97% full.
The reason for these changes is we are seeing the high elevation snow melt runoff come down the Blue River. It is very likely we will see another change or two before the Holiday Weekend.
Meanwhile, folks in and around the Town of Heeney will notice a Reclamation crew in the area next week, starting July 6. We will be replacing some of the monitoring equipment used for tracking land slide movement. We are anticipating they will be on site for several weeks.
As always please, let me know if you have any related questions.
All the best, Kara
