From email from Reclamation (Dan Crabtree):

Flows at the Whitewater Gage have consistently remained above the 900 cfs target. Consequently, releases from Crystal were reduced yesterday by 50 cfs. In addition, it appears there is a strong possibility of thunderstorms over western Colorado later this week. Therefore, it is likely releases will be further reduced by another 50 to 100 cfs in the next few days. Currently flows in the Black Canyon and Gunnison Gorge are about 640 cfs.
