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

Releases from Davis and Parker dams will vary from about 8,000 cfs to 22,000 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 genera- tion. 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 12,018 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (49 percent of capacity). Lake Mead storage is 15,072 KAF (58 percent of capacity). Total system storage is 34,793 KAF (59 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation is 3602.79 feet.

The Projected April-July forecast for the Colorado River is 8.81 million acre- feet or 111 percent of average as of November 7, 2005.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 814 cfs near the Yuma Fourth Avenue Bridge and 1,305 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary. The average release from Painted Rock Dam was 0 cfs and Alamo Dam was 175 cfs. The Morelos Dam diversions for the week of November 7, 2005 are expected to be 1,580 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.
