From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

We are still on track with the release plan from Granby Dam to the Colorado River. Today [June 24], the combined release from the dam is in the mid-2200 cfs and continues to go up. We will cap the release at 2500 cfs.

From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

With the warm temperatures today [June 24], we anticipate that we will see a spike in snow melt run-off inflows into Lake Estes late tonight. As a result, later tonight, we will increase releases from Olympus Dam to 500 cfs.
