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 23,000 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 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 12,691 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (52 percent of
capacity). Lake Mead storage is 12,963 KAF (50 percent of capacity).  Total
system storage is 33,690 KAF (57 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation
is 3609.61 feet.

The Projected April-July forecast for the Colorado River is 3.9 million acre-
feet or 49 percent of average.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 1388 cfs near the Yuma Fourth
Avenue Bridge and 1625 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary.  The
average release from Painted Rock Dam was 3 cfs and Alamo Dam was 34 cfs.  The
Morelos Dam diversions for the week of 04-Jun-2007 are expected to be 1920 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.
