TREMENDOUS outflow at the Coralville Res

We decided to take our kids out to the Coralville Reservoir last night, as we do at least once a week, since it's such a beautiful place. We were shocked needless to say at the amount of water that is coming out. The beach is also completley flooded and the shelter that they have there is also partially underwater. It is eerily reminiscent of how the area looked prior to the floods of 1993 and 2008! There were A LOT of other families/ people out there last night as well in awe of how much water there is.

I for one would like to know what is "tremendous" about 8000 cfs. Discharge in early spring is ALWAYS 10,000 cfs. You need to get out more.
