From the Fort Collins Coloradoan (Kevin Duggan):

The water level at Horsetooth Reservoir is about 30 feet higher than it typically would be for this time of year, said Kara Lamb, spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Reclamation, which operates the reservoir. Municipalities and farmers that own the water haven’t been calling for it as they normally would, she said…

Horsetooth is about 10 feet short of being full, Lamb said. Carter Lake is about 12 feet short of capacity. A hot and dry August could dramatically change the water levels at the reservoirs, she said, but so far, “it’s been a really good water year.”
