North Platte River Levels Will be Up for Awhile
Lt. Stewart Anderson, the Natrona County Emergency Manager is warning everyone to be careful near the river for the month as the snow melt and rain have raised the level considerably. Here is the release...
The North Platte River is currently flowing at around 7000 cubic feet per second (CSF). Flows are anticipated to stay at this level for most of June. This may be subject to change depending on snow melt and run off.
With the increased flows, the public may observe some water on parts of the river park way path. Areas that have had water in the past include below F street by I-25, along the area by WESTEC in Mills and parts of the path in the white water park.
In addition, the increased flows and high level of the river also creates increased ground water especially in locations close to the river.
