From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

As you all have likely heard, snow pack continues to hang on, yet inflows to Ruedi remain consistent with little change–around 1300 cfs for the last two weeks.

The reservoir is filling quickly. It is currently at an elevation of 7745 feet. As a result, we’re increasing releases again today, June 14, and tomorrow, June 15. Changes will be in 50 cfs increments at noon and again each day at 6 p.m.

With flows from the Rocky Fork running around 75 cfs, the gage below Ruedi Dam will read 650 cfs by this evening. Tomorrow, by evening, the gage will read 750 cfs.
