Friday marks the end of a snowy month for the Roaring Fork Watershed with snowpack 145% of normal for this time of year. According to the NRCS, the amount of SWE received in the Roaring Fork Watershed just this month totals 6.6 inches. With the exception of March 2019, this will be the highest March SWE accumulation in the watershed since 1995! Additionally, snowpack in the Upper Colorado River Basin (everything upstream of Lake Powell) is currently 153% of normal. Streams across the Roaring Fork Watershed are flowing below average for this time of year but will rebound as temperatures rise and snow begins to melt. Before runoff officially begins, help us spring clean our watershed by volunteering for the 25th Annual Fryingpan & Beyond River Cleanup. Sign up at
