Ryan Summerlin July 23, 2014
Water that began to spill over the Granby Dam spillway at Lake Granby on Wednesday, July 16, is now headed instead toward the Front Range through the Alva B. Adams Tunnel. The lake officially started spilling last Wednesday, according to Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, when the water level reached 8,279.5 feet. Kara Lamb with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation wrote in an email late Tuesday night, July 22, that the spill had ended and diversions to the Front Range through the tunnel increased to 408 cubic feet per second. Meanwhile, she wrote, releases from the dam into the Colorado River are running at about 70 cfs.
