As inflows to Ruedi Reservoir continue to drop off, we continue to match outflow to inflow. As a result, we'll be decreasing our release at 5 p.m. today by 30 cfs.
The resulting release from the dam to the Fryingpan should be about 156 cfs. With the Rocky Fork contributing 6 cfs, flows past the Ruedi gage should be about 162 cfs. The reservoir remains basically full--only about three feet down. The website (http://www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao/ruedi.html) has been updated to reflect this change.
