From email from Reclamation (Dan Crabtree); “The irrigation season is upon us. The Uncompahgre Valley Water Users will start diversions through the Gunnison Tunnel this week. Releases from the Aspinall Unit will be increased to accommodate these diversions with flows in the Black Canyon and Gunnison Gorge remaining in the 800 cfs range, for now. Expect some slight flow fluctuations due to timing of gate changes during this period.

“Also, attached is the meeting announcement and agenda for the combined Aspinall Operations and National Weather Service’s Colorado Water Supply Meeting to be held on April 23rd in Reclamation’s Grand Junction Office. Please note, the Operation’s portion of the meeting will be held in the morning starting at 9:30 a.m. In addition, we’d like for you to please RSVP to Bryon Lawrence at, or 970-243-7007 x493, by April 1, 2009 to ensure we have sufficient space for everyone interested.
