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 4,300 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 14,592 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (60 percent of 
capacity). Lake Mead storage is 10,949 KAF (42 percent of capacity).  Total 
system storage is 33,396 KAF (56 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation 
is 3,627.66 feet.

The April-July forecast for the Colorado River is 5.3 million acre-feet or 
67 percent of average.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 1,520 cfs near the Yuma Fourth 
Avenue Bridge and 1,766 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary.  The 
average release from Painted Rock Dam was 12 cfs and Alamo Dam was 50 cfs.  The 
Morelos Dam diversions for the week of 07-Jun-2010 are expected to be 1,693 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.
