Ruedi Reservoir operations update: 60 CFS in the #FryingpanPan River starting January 1, 2021

From email from Reclamation (Elizabeth Jones):

Ruedi Reservoir release will increase tomorrow morning by approximately 14 cfs. The flow at the Fryingpan River gage below Ruedi Reservoir will increase from 46 cfs to 60 cfs for the next two months. The release increase is due to a contract release, and the goal is to mitigate formation of anchor ice within the Fryingpan River channel.
