The forecasted inflow for Fontenelle Reservoir between the months of April and July is anticipated to be 1,738,000 acre-feet which is nearly 240 percent of normal. In addition, low-level elevation snow melt is flowing into the reservoir causing the pool elevation to increase nearly two feet over the last week. As the downstream threat from ice jams has passed, the dam releases are planned to increase from the dam in anticipation of large inflows this spring.

 

Therefore, dam releases will be steadily increased beginning Wednesday, March 15, 2017 and ending Thursday, March 30, 2017 according to the following table:
