Colorado Spring Runoff Looking Bleak

Glenwood Springs—Unless the month of March brings snow to Colorado and a lot of it, spring and summer runoff is going to be a big disappointment. According to the latest snowpack and river report from the Roaring Fork Conservancy, not much has changed in the last week. Snowpack in the Roaring Fork Watershed is currently 77% of normal. While February snowstorms vastly improved Colorado’s snowpack, officials say all locations across the state are well below normal for this time of year due to a four-month dry spell from October to January. As far as river and stream flows in the area are concerned, every site is below the mean. The Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers at Glenwood Springs are both flowing below normal levels.
