River Statement

Issued By NWS Pueblo CO
Issuing Time Wed, 15 May 2024 15:59:00 PDT

Brief Description Hydrologic Outlook
Detailed Description ESFPUB This statement is primarily for areas below Turquoise Lake along Lake Fork Creek, downstream to the Arkansas River confluence within Lake County. This statement is valid from May 15 to June 30, 2024. The potential for elevated river levels and inundation of low-lying areas, due to increased releases from Sugar Loaf Dam, is higher than normal for areas along Lake Fork Creek in Lake County. . OUTLOOK FOR THE NEXT 45 DAYS. In order to make room for anticipated inflows to Turquoise Lake from snowmelt runoff, and to prevent an uncontrolled spill from Sugar Loaf Dam, The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation will increase reservoir releases to 450 cfs beginning Wednesday May 15 and continuing through June 30, 2024. This release is expected to continue to inundate and cause damage to County Road 5 in Lake County. Local authorities and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation have been actively notifying those downstream of Sugar Loaf Dam of these anticipated impacts that could last through late June, and mitigation measures to help fortify County Road 5 and other areas are currently being made. At this time, no additional flooding or impacts are expected further downstream along Lake Fork Creek, or beyond its confluence with the Arkansas River. Please continue to heed all road closures and additional orders from local law enforcement and emergency management. . ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. For the latest information on reservoir conditions and releases from Sugar Loaf Dam at Turquoise Lake, please contact Anna Perea, Public Affairs Specialist with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, at 719-290- 1185.
