Feds preparing response to Ruedi concerns

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is preparing a response to a letter of concern about summer water releases from Ruedi Reservoir, and it should be available to the public next week, an agency spokeswoman said.

The Basalt town government and Ruedi Water and Power Authority asked the reclamation bureau for a detailed review of the water releases. The releases from the dam created a six-week “disaster” for anglers on the Fryingpan River, says a letter from the entities. Copies of the letter were sent to members of Colorado’s congressional delegation and state legislators.

The reclamation bureau received the letter Monday and is collecting information for the response, said spokeswoman Kara Lamb.
