The South Pool recently sent water into the Equalization Channel at Twin Buttes. I wonder if the trickle reached the badly depleted North Pool (pictured above).
While 2012 rains greened the ground, they're yet to add substantial runoff to area lakes.
Twin Buttes is the blue line in the chart above. It's back in the hurtin' zone, with most of the water in the South Pool and away from the dam gates. Pray for a gully washer in the Twin Buttes watershed..
