From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Late this afternoon [June 8], the crew at Green Mountain power plant returned the second generating unit back to service. We are now ramping up to generate hydro-electric power at full capacity. As a result, releases through the plant from the reservoir are going up in 100 cfs increments. At 4 p.m. today we bumped up to about 900 cfs. At 6 p.m. we bumped up to around 1000 cfs. We will bump up again at 8 p.m. to 1100 cfs. And we will increase one more time around 10 p.m. tonight to 1200 cfs. We will maintain the 1200 cfs from Green Mountain Reservoir and Power Plant to the Lower Blue River until further notice.
