Waterflow reports for the Colorado river from Glenn Canyon dam to Parker dam

Releases from Davis and Parker dams will vary from about 4,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 23,500 cfs during a 24-hour period. River levels will vary during the 24-hour periods with the higher levels coinciding with periods of peak hydroelectric power generation. Levels below the dams are usually highest during the afternoon and early evening. Average daily releases may vary in response to changing conditions.

Average daily releases and midnight lake elevations for the week, as well as anticipated average for the following 2 weeks, are scheduled as follows:

Current Lake Powell storage is 9234 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (38 percent of capacity). Lake Mead storage is 15679 KAF (61 percent of capacity). Total system storage is 32375 KAF (55 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation is 3571.56 feet.

The Projected April-July forecast for the Colorado River is 8.9 million acre- feet or 112 percent of average as of May 23, 2005.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 1275 cfs near the Yuma Fourth Avenue Bridge and 1431 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary. The average release from Painted Rock Dam was 774 cfs and Alamo Dam was 173 cfs. The Morelos Dam diversions for the week of May 23, 2005 are expected to be 1590 cfs.

All RIVER USERS should remember that fluctuating river flows may conceal or create natural hazards such as moving sandbars, gravel bars, unstable riverbanks, floating or submerged debris, or other unfamiliar obstacles. Caution should be be exercised while using the river between Davis Dam and the Mexican Border at San Luis, Arizona.
