MILLS, Wyo. -- Reclamation would like to notify the public that the road crossing Guernsey Dam has been reopened. The road had been closed for most of the non-irrigation season to accommodate rehabilitation of the Guernsey North Spillway Gate. The project involved cleaning, recoating, and replacing worn components of the gate. This important work to ensure the continued reliable operation of the spillway and the dependable delivery of water to the water users has been completed.
