March 1, 2018:
Made two significant changes to the Dreamflows flow reporting system:
  1. Added color-coded 'tracks' to the maps page so that you can now visually see which runs are at good flow (and which not), see the Realtime Page for a sample.  As a byproduct, you can select runs by difficulty (Class III, etc).
  2. Added the ability to display all flow information for all states reported by Dreamflows on the same page, see the All States standard flow report.


Note: The historical changes page provides a list of additional Dreamflows changes, going back to early 2002.
