The release from Ruedi will be increased Thursday morning by approximately 40 cfs. After this adjustment, the flow at the Fryingpan River gage below Ruedi Reservoir will increase to approximately 300 cfs.
This increase is the result of the junior Grand Valley Canal water call administered at the Cameo river gage on the Colorado River. This water call requires Ruedi Reservoir to release all inflow and make releases for contracts and replacement releases for the Boustead Tunnel diversions. We will also continue the current releases we are making for fish recovery efforts in the 15-mile reach of the Colorado River.
For any concerns regarding reservoir operations at Ruedi please contact Patience Hurley at 701-221-1204.
