A quick update on facilities across the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. The webpages at www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao have been updated. Once on the main page, be sure to check out the menu on the left hand side to see information on other facilities.
Meanwhile, Granby is releasing about 420 cfs.
Willow Creek is releasing about 77 cfs.
Olympus Dam on Lake Estes is releasing about 125 cfs.
All reservoirs are basically full, with the exception of Lake Estes, Pinewood and Flatiron. These three fluctuate often due to hydro-power generation. Pinewood and Flatiron, in particular, might drop significantly over the course of one day, then rise back up again.
