Fryingpan-Arkansas Project operations update: 195 cfs in the river below Ruedi dam


From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Flows in the Colorado River continue to drop due to hot and dry conditions. This week, it is anticipated they will drop below the target levels set for the four endangered fish of the Colorado River. As a result, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has called for increased releases from Ruedi Reservoir. Around 5 p.m. today, July 3, we will increase releases from Ruedi by 50 cfs. The resulting flow by the Ruedi gage below the dam should be about 195 cfs. The 195 cfs release will continue through Independence Day and likely through the weekend.
