Effective immediately, restrictions that previously limited waterway activities on Clear Creek have been lifted. The boundaries within the city affected by the restriction order on June 8 extended from the Highway 6 bridge over Clear Creek eastward up to, and including, Vanover Park.
All single-chambered, air-inflated devices such as belly boats, inner tubes, and single chambered rafts, as well as body surfers and swimming were restricted due to the high flow rate of Clear Creek. As a result of decreased flow rate, water activities involving these devices are allowed back on the creek.
Although the risk has diminished, all users are encouraged to observe caution due to safety concerns surrounding swift moving water.
