From the Sky-Hi Daily News:

September 1-15, Grand County released an additional 45 cfs. From September 16 – 30, Grand County will reduce its release to 30 cfs. Releases will decrease to 20 cfs on October 1-15 and 10 cfs on October 16-30. In March 2010, 321 acre-feet of county water will remain in Granby Reservoir, which is predicted to fill in spring. Depending on conditions, the commissioners may decide to release the remaining water. The county paid Northern $72,000 in 2009 pumping costs. “We are pleased Northern has allowed us to pump again this year,” says County Manager Lurline Underbrink Curran. “The relationship between Northern and the county has blossomed, allowing us to put unclaimed water to use to benefit Grand County.”
