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 24,000 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 12,376 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (51 percent of
capacity). Lake Mead storage is  14,013 KAF (54 percent of capacity).  Total
system storage is  34,408 KAF (58 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation
is 3606.45 feet.

The observed April-July inflow into Lake Powell for the Colorado River was
5.32 million acre-feet or 67 percent of average.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 1,030 cfs near the Yuma
Fourth Avenue Bridge and 1,344 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary.
The average release from Painted Rock Dam was 1 cfs and Alamo Dam was 45  cfs.
The Morelos Dam diversions for the week of 07-Aug-2006 are expected to be
1,490 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.
