From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Today, February 3 2011, we increased releases from Green Mountain Reservoir to the Lower Blue River in two increments of 25 cfs, one in the morning, one in early afternoon. As a result, the Lower Blue should now be running at about 175 cfs. Currently, Green Mountain Reservoir is at a water level elevation of about 7904–about 46 feet down from completely full. However, because of the above average snowpack in the Blue River basin, we have increased releases slightly to help with what we anticipate will be a large run-off. The reservoir elevation will drop very slowly at this release rate. I will keep you posted of additional changes, if any.
