Guernsey Reservoir To Be Emptied

Cheyenne, WY – The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation warns that water levels at Guernsey Reservoir will drop quickly starting July 6 and that boat ramps at the reservoir will no longer be usable by the afternoon of July 7.

The federal agency also states that starting July 10, water will be released from Glendo Reservoir to begin the silt run through Guernsey. The operation will flush silt into the canals of downstream irrigators through July 24.

On July 25, the release of water from Glendo will increase rapidly to refill Guernsey. The Bureau of Reclamation states that the boat ramps at Guernsey should be usable again by July 30.
