From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Run-off into Ruedi Reservoir has really started to come up the last few days. As a result, we are increasing the release from the dam by 100 cfs [June 13]. It will be done in two 50 cfs increments.

The first change was about an hour ago, raising the release from Ruedi to the lower Fryingpan from around 375 to 425. With the Rocky Fork’s current contribution of around 75 cfs, there is about 500 now flowing down the ‘Pan past the Ruedi gage.

Our second change will be around 6 p.m. tonight. That will bump the release from the dam from 425 to 475 cfs. With the Rocky Fork continuing to run at this current level, the Ruedi gage below the dam should wind up reading close to 550 cfs by this evening.
