Tubing ban rescinded at noon today for North Saint Vrain and Saint Vrain Creeks
Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Sheriff, Joseph Pelle, has determined that there is no longer an immediate danger from the spring runoff into the North Saint Vrain and the Saint Vrain Creeks, and, therefore, lifts the Partial Use Restriction of the North Saint Vrain and Saint Vrain Creek from Apple Valley Road to North Foothills Highway in Boulder County effective June 21, 2021, at 12:00 p.m.
The Partial Use Restriction, which went into effect on June 9, 2021, banned the use of single-chambered air-inflated devices, including inner tubes and air mattresses, in the creeks pursuant to C.R.S. 33-13-110(2)(c) and 2019 Colorado Boating Regulations, #217(1)(b) & (3)(c), promulgated by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
