 SAN JUAN RIVER BASIN SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK

The 2015 spring runoff flood potential is not high at this time for streams
throughout the San Juan River Basin. Snowpack and seasonal precipitation
(October-Jmid Febuary) are below to much below average. Soil moisture is also below
average across most of the basin. Seasonal April-July streamflow
volumes are expected to range between 45 and 75 percent of the 1981-2010
average.

While conditions currently are not favorable for high flows adequate snow
accumulation season remains and conditions may change.

Further assessment will be made regarding any snow melt flood threat as
the season progresses.
