Sheriff to rescind Saint Vrain River tubing ban

Water flow rate has slowed to safer levels; tubing ban to be rescinded at midnight

Lyons, Colo. - Sheriff Joe Pelle, in consultation with Victoria Simonsen, the Lyons Town Administrator, and Lyons Fire Chief J.J. Hoffman, has concluded that the water flow rates in the Saint Vrain creeks, which converge into the Saint Vrain River, have sufficiently slowed to rates where the tubing ban can be rescinded. The tubing ban will be rescinded at midnight tonight.

A copy of the media release describing the implementation of the tubing ban can be located here.
