Weekly Snowpack and River Report

April 2, 2020

Snowpack in the Roaring Fork watershed is at 109% of normal for this time of year. With snow forecast over the next few days, we hope to maintain our slightly above average snowpack as long as possible, especially as we welcome a new month.  While snow water equivalent (SWE) at all SNOTEL sites is about the same as last week, stream flows are slowly starting to rise. For the second week in a row, the Bureau of Reclamation is increasing releases out of Ruedi Reservoir in effort to make room for snowmelt from the headwaters.  Starting April 3, the Fryingpan River will flow at 160 cfs where it will remain for the near future.

We want to thank our friends and Business Members at Karp Neu Hanlon, P.C. for sponsoring our April River and Snowpack and Reports.
