I have pretty solid information that the creek will be opened up tomorrow from Broadway to the West! It ain't open until it is, but keep an eye out for formal notification!

Awesome news. Sounds like all the calls to Fire Dept made a difference.

But moral of this story is that Fire Dept made a knee jerk closure anticipating 30-60 days right into the heart of kayak season.

They got around the CO statute that prevents local authorities for closing creek to hard shell boats by declaring emergency powers.

But there was no emergency. In fact from Bway upstream conditions were just fine after extensive restoration work guided by Gary Lacy.

This is mind boggling and cause for city council to reflect of this situation after it is resolved.

Nice Work everyone!

Its nice to see some semblance of govt listen. Its been a while since I saw a quick turn around like that.

Kudos to everyone for putting in the calls.
