Tuttle Creek Lake basin conditions are reviewed by the Corps

Posted Feb 20, 2021 4:43 AM

Tuttle Creek Reservoir is currently releasing 180-200 cubic feet of water per second and 1.7% into the flood pool with 600 cfs inflow.  

According to the Corps of Engineers Tuttle Creek staff cleared the debris that was blocking the Rocky Ford gate to allow the low flows. The stilling basin construction is ongoing and continues to require reduced releases until at least mid-March. The Corps said some opportunity may exist to release over 200 cfs, but some level of restriction will continue until this phase of construction is complete.
