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
1,800 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 15,000 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:

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
