The following are two emails from Kara on current activities at Green Mountain and Ruedi Reservoirs.
Just a quick note: I know you all got messages last week as our releases from the dam to the Lower Blue went up.
Currently, we are releasing about 3300 cfs from the dam to the Lower Blue. The reservoir is about half an inch from completely full.
I've updated our main webpage if you'd like additional information: http://www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao/
Yesterday and today saw some reductions from the release out of Ruedi Dam. We should be releasing closer to around 800 cfs, now.
Also, just a quick reminder that we will be at the Basalt Town Hall tomorrow evening for our annual Ruedi operations public meeting. We'll give an overview of run-off this year and the Fish and Wildlife Service will provide a forecast for what they are expecting to call from the reservoir during late summer and early fall.
I've got the Ruedi webpage updated with additional information: www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao/ruedi.html
