From the US Bureau of Reclamation (Peter Soeth) via the Loveland Reporter-Herald:
With the warmer weather and more snow melting, runoff is increasing, according to the Bureau of Reclamation.
In a press release Sunday, a Reclamation spokesman said the agency planned to increase releases from Olympus Dam in Estes Park on Sunday from 125 cubic feet per second to 175 cfs.
“Please be safe around the river,” spokesman Peter Soeth said.
The dam at Lake Estes is part of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project.
