...HIGH STREAM LEVELS REPORTED IN THE DECKER BURN SCAR AREA...

Reports from authorities in the Decker burn scar indicated high
water was running in area streams in the Decker burn scar. In
particular, Bear Creek was running about twice the average flow
and soils in and around the Decker burn scar were reported as
saturated. People traveling in and around the Decker burn scar are
urged to use caution due to the high stream flows.

Additional rain and snow is forecast to occur today, and this will
allow for continued high stream levels across the Decker burn scar
region.

The Decker burn scar is located south of Salida.
