River: South Platte - Waterton Canyon

Waterton Canyon closure

Denver Water has announced that Waterton Canyon will be closed from February 2nd to May 15th so that they can rebuild the Highline Canal diversion dam located a couple of miles up the canyon near the Black Bear picnic area. The little dam blew out last year during the prolonged high flows. Here is a link to the announcement [log in for link]

Great information... thanks!

Yea... I've seen that dam and it definitely looks sketchy.
