Water Storage Status

4/23/2018 Water Storage Status

Below is the Supply & Reports brought to you by Denver Water along with a table showing the reservoir levels for the South Platte System.

Denver Water diligently collects and analyzes data from throughout our system to help us better understand where our water supply and demand stand.

Water Watch Report

The Water Watch Report is a summary of water supply and demand conditions (e.g., reservoir supply, snowpack and precipitation) prepared for Denver’s Board of Water Commissioners. During the winter, the report is updated the Monday before Board meetings, which are normally the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. During the watering/irrigation season, it is updated weekly.

Daily raw water updates

Denver Water collects readings at stream gages and reservoirs throughout the system and provides daily updates year-round. The data reflect average conditions over the course of 24 hours at reporting locations; all data are preliminary and subject to revision.

      • Reservoir Levels: Readings taken at stream gages and reservoirs in Denver Water’s collection system.
      • Streamflows: How much water, in cubic feet per second, is flowing at different locations along the South Platte and Colorado rivers. Streamflow rates depend on Denver Water’s diversions into reservoirs, tunnels, canals and ditches.
      • Diversions: Water diversions at different tunnels, canals and ditches in Denver Water’s South Platte and Moffat collection systems. The amount of water Denver Water diverts affects streamflow rates throughout the watershed.

Weather data

On a daily basis, Denver Water provides weather reporting and data with information on conditions such as temperature, rainfall and evapotranspiration.
