Turquoise Lake at 29% During Spring Runoff Draws

On Monday May 19 afternoon (when this photo was taken), the Bureau of Reclamation increased the release from Sugarloaf Dam on Turquoise Reservoir to Lake Fork Creek. The physical gate change at the dam resulted in a release of about 100 cfs. A similar increase happened yesterday May 20. As different entities begin moving water from the West Slope to the East Slope, some water will be released down Lake Fork Creek from Turquoise Reservoir in order to make room for the imports. Yesterday afternoon, the Bureau of Reclamation reported they had bumped up 50 cfs. As a result, Lake Fork Creek should now be around 150 cfs. Turquoise Reservoir is currently drawn down to about 29% full in order to make room for Spring Runoff and project imports.
