Twin Lakes and Turquoise coming into July 4
Kara Lamb, USBR
Hi all,

Coming into July Fourth weekend, Twin Lakes Reservoir is about 90% full. Turquoise Reservoir is about 84% full. Both are still rising.

As we see some of the higher elevation snow melt out, we are increasing releases from Twin Lakes Dam to Lake Creek and the Arkansas. This morning, releases went up to about 915 cfs. Around 620 cfs of that is snowmelt runoff.

Please let me know if you have any related questions. Have a great Fourth of July!
