Boaters, the clean up is going well- they have 50% of the tar bagged and tagged. However, the remaining 50% (including what’s on the near shore where the truck came to rest) will take the remainder of the week to clean up. The EPA is “hopeful” they can finish the clean-up and open the river for recreation (and drinking water for Ft Collins and Greeley) by the Labor Day weekend. As soon as I hear news I will relay it to you.
In the mean time, the canyon will remain cool today- highs in the upper 60’s, maybe touching the low 70’s- partly cloudy and late afternoon thunder showers. Have fun and be safe.
