Colorado-Big Thompson Project update

From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

The recent rain is adding inflow to Lake Estes, so we have begun to increase our releases from Olympus Dam to the lower Big Thompson River again. Earlier this morning, June 12, we bumped up releases to around 600 cfs. Around 9 a.m. this morning we went up another 100 cfs to 700 cfs. We will make another increase at 10:00 a.m. to 800 cfs. As the rain continues, additional increases in releases to the Big Thompson Canyon are possible.
