From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Today, October 1, at 5 p.m., we curtailed Ruedi releases some more. As water for the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program wraps up for the year, we continue to reduce releases from the dam. Today’s change dropped releases another 50 cfs, resulting in a flow of about 140 cfs at the gage below the dam. Releases will continue to drop over the course of the week. Changes will be made in 50 cfs increments until we reach about 80 cfs in the Fryingpan.
