Runoff continues to slow. As a result, nightly inflows to Ruedi Reservoir continue to back down. With the reservoir essentially full, we are basically passing that inflow on through the reservoir and downstream to the lower Fryingpan River.
This evening around 6 p.m., we will reduce releases from the reservoir to the 'Pan by 50 cfs. The resulting flow past the Ruedi Dam gage will be about 209 cfs.
As always, please let me know if you have any related questions.
