Heavy spring runoff means that tubing, swimming and body-surfing are all restricted in the near future on Clear Creek.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office issued temporary restrictions on these activities Monday afternoon.
They say they’re prohibiting all “single-chambered air inflated devices such as belly boats, inner tubes, and single-chambered rafts, as well as ‘body surfers and swimming.’”
Kayaks, paddle boards, whitewater canoes and multi-chambered rafts are still allowed, but everyone involved must be using a life jacket and helmet.
What happens if you violate this rule?
You could get a $100 fine and a summons for a class two petty offense, the sheriff’s office said.
