From TheDenverChannel.com (Liz Gelardi):

Staff at Frisco Bay Marina are trying to keep up with water levels that are dropping about one inch per day.

“And so an inch a day going down means the water line is moving 10 feet out every day, so we have to keep chasing it and moving the docks, which is definitely a lot of work,” said Tom Hogeman, the marina’s general manager…

Hogeman said he hasn’t seen the water this low since 2012 and it will only continue to go down as we head into the fall. The marina is typically open for rentals through mid-October but this year the season could end early.
