Season : Winter 2007-08
Typical Winter Low Elevation: 1308.0 ft.
2007-08 Projected Winter Low Elevation: 1308.0 ft.
§ Based on the current reservoir level and the increase in inflow from the October rains, Xcel Energy intends to draw down the reservoir to an elevation of 1308.0 ft. this winter.
§ The projected 1308.0 ft. elevation is based on an average winter snowpack and average inflows into the reservoir during the winter months.
§ Discharge flows from the dam will be maintained at or slightly above minimum levels (>250 cubic feet per second) at the onset of winter with increases in discharge through the winter months to reduce the reservoir to the projected 1308.0 ft. elevation.
§ Xcel Energy intends to re-evaluate the reservoir level and snowpack
in late January or early February 2008 to determine if a new forecast is
necessary due to deviations in snowpack or inflow changes.
