UPDATED November 4, 2016


The Georgetown Lake water surface elevation was 6428.40 feet on October 31. That is well above the end of October median of 6428.17 feet and a great level heading into November and freeze-up. For October, outflow averaged 15 cfs and is now at 13 cfs which appears to be holding the lake at a steady level.

The lake gained 595 acre feet through the month, an average gain of 9.7 cfs. Adding that to the outflow means monthly average lake inputs equal 24.7 cfs, which is 108% of normal.  There was good October precipitation in the watershed, with Peterson Meadows registering 2.7 inches (150% of normal) and 4.0 inches (132%) at Warm Springs SNOTEL. 

The Climate Prediction Center is still indicating elevated chances of above-normal snowfall for the winter.  I will issue a few winter snowpack updates and revisit overall conditions early in 2017. Granite County did an excellent job of managing the lake and outflows this past year and things look great heading into winter.

Thanks, Dave
