High water

The Meeker Circle Park gate has been locked for several days, closing the bridge and access to the park because of high water. The annual “Fishing is Fun” day, sponsored by the Colorado Division of Wildlife and several local businesses, was canceled Saturday and the CDOW is tentatively rescheduling for June 25. The water was running at 5,920 cfs yesterday and there is still a lot of snow in the high country.

RBC I The Colorado Water Conservation Board encourages property owners, recreationalists, businesses and communities to pay close attention to local waterways in coming days as stream flows in many rivers within the northern portion of Colorado are quickly increasing as warmer weather enters the state.
