Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Ruedi Reservoir is located in Colorado and was constructed in the 1960s by the Bureau of Reclamation. The reservoir is a popular destination for recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and camping, and also serves as a source of water for agriculture and municipalities. The reservoir has a total capacity of 102,373 acre-feet and is fed by the Fryingpan River, which is known for its excellent fly fishing. Ruedi Reservoir also receives water from snowpack melt, which is critical for water supply in the region. The surrounding area is used for ranching and agriculture, with water diverted from the reservoir for irrigation. The hydrology of Ruedi Reservoir is carefully monitored to ensure a stable water supply for stakeholders, and the management of the reservoir is an essential component of the water management plan for the region.
