Get the Boats Ready for Summer: Dolores River Spill Is Going to Happen

Feb 17, 2017

Even though it's only February, 2017 will likely be an exciting time for local boaters--water managers for the McPhee dam have already decided to release water on the Lower Dolores River this summer. Dolores Water Conservancy District Chief Engineer Ken Curtis says they announced their decision to have a “spill” last Friday at a meeting for river conservationists and boaters. Curtis sat down with KSJD's Austin Cope to talk more about what to expect.
