Powell forecast up a million acre feet

The Bureau of Reclamation’s monthly storage model runs, based on the latest Colorado River Basin runoff forecasts, show Lake Powell ending the water year (Sept. 30) at 13.8 million acre feet. That’s an increase of more than a million feet over the May estimate, and 2.8 million acre feet above the Sept. 30, 2018 number:

  1. Some family was up there a few weeks ago. Weather was not favorible for going out on lake, but they got to watch it rise.

  2. it is already up 30ft from the low point so will be interesting to see how much further it will go up.
