* The Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir will remain near

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from snow melt will continue through early next
week and cause high inflows into Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Minor
flooding along the banks and in low lying areas will be possible.

Remember at higher flows... river banks can become saturated and
unstable. Caution is urged as these banks can erode or collapse
unexpectedly. Expect extra debris to be swept downstream. Do not let
children play near high flowing rivers.

River rafters and kayakers should use caution with high
flows... strong currents... and cold water temperatures. Novices
should ride with experienced guides or commercial outfitters. Even
experienced boaters should be aware of The Hazards a river presents
at differing levels and rates of flow.
