Eagle River Watershed Council Announces Peak Flow Prediction Contest Winners

Jacque Stevenson, of Avon, is the grand prize winner of the 2021 Peak Flow Prediction Contest. Congrats Jacque!

Eagle River Watershed Council is thrilled to announce the winners of its third annual Peak Flow Prediction Contest. The contest is a fundraiser for stream rehabilitation and maintenance projects, as well as engaging educational programs. River enthusiasts from across the nation participated in the contest, which was virtual and closed April 22, 2021.

Contest participants entered to win amazing prizes donated by nationally-known recreation brands, including Badfish, Riversmith, Centennial Canoe Outfitters, Down River Equipment, Fishpond, CKS Online and Astral, for purchasing guesses of the date and time of the Eagle River’s peak flow at the Gypsum gauge. Prizes were made possible by the generous support of the partner businesses listed above, as well as from local support from Rancho del Rio.

According to the USGS website, the Eagle River’s peak flow at the Gypsum gauge took place June 5 at 8:15 am, with 2150 cfs measured. This year, with a guess only 2.5 hours off of the recorded peak flow, Jacque Stevenson, of Avon, has been declared the grand prize winner. She will receive a Monarch stand up paddleboard by Badfish. Her peak flow guess was for June 5 at 10:45 am, with a flow of 3,300 cfs.

Additional winners include Joseph Blair, Kimberly Carson, Jessica Foulis, Kevin Pilgrim, Bill Sullivan, Bodd Dodd, and Ben Kleimer. Thank you to all who participated in and supported the 2021 Peak Flow Prediction Contest.
