Released On: July 23, 2003
During the Silt Run, water to meet downstream irrigation demands is released from Glendo Reservoir and flows through Guernsey Reservoir, flushing silt from Guernsey Reservoir into the canals of downstream irrigators.
The water level in Guernsey Reservoir will remain lowered through noon on July 31, 2003. Beginning on July 31, 2003, the release of water from Glendo Reservoir will be rapidly increased to refill Guernsey Reservoir to a level suitable for recreation on August 3, 2003.
Boaters, recreationists, and irrigators should take proper precautions regarding changing river flows between Glendo and Guernsey Reservoirs and the rapid lowering and refilling of Guernsey Reservoir.
