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 4,600 cubic feet per second 
(cfs) to 25,000 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 15,267 thousand acre-feet (KAF) (63 percent of
capacity). Lake Mead storage is 10,092 KAF (39 percent of capacity).  Total
system storage is 33,072 KAF (56 percent of capacity). Lake Powell elevation
is 3,633.66 feet.

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 1,070 cfs near the Yuma Fourth 
Avenue Bridge and 1,328 cfs at the Northerly International Boundary.  The 
average release from Painted Rock Dam was 0 cfs and Alamo Dam was 57 cfs.  The 
Morelos Dam diversions for the week of 04-Oct-2010 are expected to be 801 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.
