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 16,000 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:

Yesterday, the average Colorado River flows were 426 cfs near the
Yuma Fourth Avenue Bridge and 1,579 cfs at the Northerly
International Boundary.  The average release from Painted Rock Dam
was 0 cfs and Alamo Dam was 25 cfs.  The Morelos Dam diversions for
the week of 05-Dec-2011 are expected to be 1,511 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.
