Based on the shutdown schedule provided by the Irrigation Districts, Guernsey Reservoir is expected to remain accessible for boating recreation through the weekend of August 26-27. Reclamation will begin drawing down Guernsey Reservoir on Monday, August 28. To avoid potential problems associated with declining reservoir levels, Reclamation advises that watercraft be removed from the reservoir by the evening of Sunday, August 27. Beginning on August 28, the reservoir will begin to decline rapidly as the irrigation season draws to a close. The reservoir will not be suitable for boating recreation until next year.
Boaters, recreationists, and irrigators should take proper precautions regarding changing river flows between Glendo and Guernsey Reservoirs and the lowering of Guernsey Reservoir.
