Releases to Blue River are increasing
7/1/2011

Bureau of Reclamation Email
Yesterday, Denver Water increased the Dillon Reservoir release by 200 cfs, resulting
in a commensurate increase of Green Mountain Reservoir inflow. Further, the latest
projection shows an additional increase of Green Mountain Reservoir inflow. To
accommodate this additional inflow, the Green Mountain Reservoir release will be
increased by 300 cfs. This release rate increase will be accomplished in two steps
of approximately 150 cfs each. Because the powerplant is currently running at
maximum capacity, these release rate increases will be accomplished by raising the
center spillway gate. With the current release rate being approximately 1,800 cfs,
these release rate increases will result in a flow rate of approximately 2,100 cfs
at the Blue River gage below the dam by this afternoon.
