The Yampa River was flowing at less than one-tenth of its typical 1,000 cubic feet per second through Steamboat Springs on Monday. A conservation nonprofit, the Colorado Water Trust, has reached an agreement on a lease to allow additional releases from Stagecoach Reservoir to bolster flows in the town stretch of the river.
