Green River Basin Daily Model (GRM)
  • Overview
  • Update
  • Current Daily Results
  • Enhancements
  • Future Development
purpose
Purpose
  • The GRM is being developed to project water availability in the Upper Green River Basin based on current operating criteria contained in the Flaming Gorge Record of Decision (ROD), and assess future impacts of water development in the Upper Colorado Region on the Green River.
  • Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program published Green River flow and temperature recommendations that require operational decision-making processes and analysis on a daily time step.

  • Monthly time step
  • 2007 UCRC Demand Schedule
    • Spatial and temporal distribution
  • Direct Natural Flow – Index Sequential Method (ISM)
  • Flaming Gorge Record of Decision
    • Flow recommendation compliance based on calculated values at specific daily thresholds
    • Neither Flaming Gorge nor Jensen has a daily hydrograph in CRSS
crss rule updates
CRSS Rule Updates
  • Direct Natural Flow – Index Sequential Method (ISM)
  • Daily disaggregation calculations are done at the end of each model run (post processing)
  • Demands are the 2007 UCRC depletions
  • Daily disaggregation of Yampa River spring flows
    • April-July period
  • Flaming Gorge daily spring hydrograph
    • Record of Decision rule set
    • Static start date on May 23
    • April-July daily flows and monthly outflow are different due to post-processing being over April-July period
  • Daily Base Flows (Aug-Mar) are averaged monthly data

Yampa Daily Disaggregated Spring Peak Flows

Yampa daily disaggregation meets daily spring peak flow of 14,000 cfs is projected 40% of the time. Adding FG power plant capacity of 4,600 cfs results in recommended 18,600 cfs at Jensen.

Spring flows meet one-day peak requirement of 18,600 cfs at least 40% of the time

Static FG start date impacts the ability to model meeting at least 14 days at 18,600 cfs 40% of the time

green river model rule updates
Green River Model Rule Updates
  • Calculations are done in March before spring peak and no longer need proportional data
    • Allows peak to occur in April
  • Demands are 2007 UCRC depletions
  • Daily disaggregation of Yampa River spring flows
    • April-July period using same data
  • Flaming Gorge daily hydrograph
    • Record of Decision rule set
    • Releases start 3 days before maximum Yampa peak
    • April-July daily flows summed to monthly outflow
  • Daily Base Flows are averaged monthly data
green river model development
Green River Model Development
  • Updated rules are limited in hydrologically extreme years
    • ISM run aborts in minimum release and flood control situations
  • Dynamic FG peak release to assist in scenario development
    • LTSP
    • Basin Study scenarios
  • Potential to optimize release magnitudes and durations to conserve water and meet flow targets
  • Utilize Basin Study inflow hydrology and demand scenarios
