Reservoir Update

June 13, 2008 - 4:35 PM

At 4:00 pm today, the inflow to the Coralville Reservoir was an unprecidented 60,000 CFS with the outflow at around 42,270 CFS. The storage of the Reservoir was at almost 270,000 acre-feet of water out of a total capacity of 461,200 acre-feet.

What this means is that at the current flow rates, water would go over the top of the dam in roughly 128 hrs. Things will of course change as we go along here, but if it keeps raining like it has, this could be within the realm of possibility.
