The reservoir level is expected to decline approximately 4 inches per day starting on December 21 and ending on January 5. "Water released in the drawdown of Alcova Reservoir will be restored downstream in Glendo Reservoir," Myler said. The reservoir will be maintained at the lower elevation of 5483 ± 1 foot for the duration of the winter. The reservoir will begin to rise to the summer operating level after mid-March.
Depending on weather conditions, the draw-down may create unusual ice conditions along the shoreline. Recreationists should take proper precautions.
