Green Mountain Reservoir operations update: 150 CFS in the Blue River below the dam #CODrought


From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

We have begun our weekly coordination calls for reservoir operations across the upper Colorado River basin. Flows in the Colorado River are rapidly declining, as most of you know. As a result, we are upping releases from Green Mountain to the Lower Blue today in two phases. By late this afternoon, we’ll be releasing 150 cfs.

The road across the dam has also reopened as the bridge work is nearly complete.
