...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...RUNOFF FROM SNOW MELT WILL KEEP RIVER FLOWS STRONG AND MAY
PRESENT HAZARDS NEAR WATERWAYS ACROSS WESTERN COLORADO AND EASTERN
UTAH...

Above normal temperatures...with mild nights...will allow the
the high country snow pack to melt at an accelerated rate through
at least the first full week of June.

Remember at increased flows...river banks can become saturated
and unstable. Caution is urged as these banks can erode or
collapse unexpectedly. Expect extra debris to be swept downstream.
Do not let children play near high flowing rivers...creeks and
canals.

River rafters and kayakers should use caution on rivers with
increased flows...strong currents...and cold water temperatures.
Novices should ride with experienced guides or commercial
outfitters. Even experienced boaters should be aware of the
hazards a river presents at differing levels and rates of flow.

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction is urging everyone
in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah to stay safe and use extra
caution around rivers...streams...and creeks during this runoff
period.
