measured in percent of annual averages
I spoke with Susan Cassel, a BLM director in the Kremmling offices last week regarding runoff and expected river levels ahead for the Spring. She anticipates a great year and they're already bumping up the Blue River from Green Mtn with some incredible flows to make it down the Canyon this Summer and for the Colorado River basin.

Kara Lamb also from the BLM office sent this to me today:We plan on spending time in May on the public meeting circuit, sharing our projections for run-off. Last night, we presented our projections for Granby and Willow Creek releases, and a little on Green Mountain, in Granby, Colo. Our next stop will be Tuesday, May 3 at the River District's annual State of the River meeting for the Blue River (including Green Mountain). That will be in Frisco--visit http://www.crwcd.org/page_115 for more information. We might have some other meetings, as well. I'll keep you posted. Meanwhile, if you would like a copy of our presentations, please let me know. Please keep in mind, though, that the data we present at public meetings is all projection and subject to change.
