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

Lower Colorado River Operations Schedule

Releases from Davis and Parker dams will vary from about 4,500 cubic feet 
per second (cfs) to 22,800 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 averages for the following 2 weeks, are scheduled as follows:

Current Lake Powell storage is 11,804 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (49 percent of 
capacity).  Lake Mead storage is 13,376 KAF (52 percent of capacity).  Total 
system storage is 33,111 KAF (56 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation is 
3,600.56 feet.

The Projected April-July forecast for the Colorado River is 4 million acre-feet 
or 50 percent of average.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 952 cfs near the Yuma Fourth 
Avenue Bridge and 1,798 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary.  The average 
release from Painted Rock Dam was 10 cfs and Alamo Dam was 0 cfs.  The Morelos Dam 
diversions for the week of 07-May-2007 are expected to be 1,655 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 exercised while 
using the river between Davis Dam and the Mexican Border at San Luis, Arizona.
