County offers high water safety reminders and resources for property protection

June 3, 2020 - Eagle County rivers and streams are close to peak runoff for the year. Abnormally high temperatures over an extended period have accelerated the high elevation snowmelt. Flows in area rivers, streams, and creeks will continue to run at elevated levels due to the recent snowmelt and reservoir releases. Rafters, kayakers and other river users should be aware of river flows when recreating on the water. 

Officials are not expecting any flooding issues, but are reminding the community of the importance of being prepared. Sandbag locations, flood maps, and other information can be found on the Eagle County website at www.eaglecounty.us/FloodPlanning.
