From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

If you’re interested in what releases from Ruedi Reservoir to the Fryingpan River will look like this spring, then Wednesday May 12, 2010 needs to be on your calendar. On that day, Reclamation will host the first of two Ruedi Reservoir operations meeting scheduled for this year.

The May 12 meeting will be held at the Basalt Town Hall, 101 Midland Avenue, Basalt, from 7:00—9:00 p.m.

The primary focus of the meeting will be on Ruedi Reservoir’s operations over the past water year (2009) and projected operations for the current water year (2010). Included in the presentation will be an overview of Reclamation’s role as a water resource manager in Colorado.

As always, the meeting will conclude with a public question and answer session.

A second operations meeting will be held at the same location in late July. The second meeting will provide an update on projected reservoir operations for the month of August and for early fall, key fishing seasons in Basalt, Colo.
