Looking north across the upper Fryingpan River Valley, covered in several feet of snow.
(Above) As a result of good snow pack last spring and a lot of summer and autumn rain, Ruedi Reservoir is currently above average storage for this time of year.

Ruedi Reservoir

Ruedi Reservoir is now in winter operations.

In February, we are increasing releases as conditions warrant. We are keeping an eye on the reservoir's water level elevation, snow pack, and the fluctuating inflows.
