Blue Mesa Reservoir —- Wednesday, September 14, 2022

Blue Mesa Reservoir is the primary Reservoir from which OUR irrigation water flows THROUGH.

Our irrigation water comes from Taylor Park Reservoir, owned and operated by the Uncompahgre Valley Water Users.   The Water from Taylor Park flows into the Gunnison River through Blue Mesa Reservoir then out to all of us.

We took a short trip (it’s about an hour or so to the reservoir) to see how low it is.

It’s low.

You can see by the water line.

Gosh, I sure hope we have lots and lots and lots of snow this winter.

For our water in the Gunnison and the Uncompaghre flow into the Colorado River and all of you know how bad THAT is.
