    Earlier, I inadvertently shared a page urging the County and City to re-open the Creek. Obviously I didn't read it carefully enough before sharing--I fully agree with the decision to keep the Creek shut to safeguard our first responders!Typically creek closures are related to high water levels, which means there are some exceptions for who can and cannot use the creek. This COVID-19 situation is much different. To help comply with social distancing standards, we've coordinated with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office to mandate a full closure of Clear Creek for any recreational activities. The full press release is below. Thank you for your understanding and compliance.

    Access Restricted on Clear Creek
    Jefferson County, CO. – Effective at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday April 9, 2020, and until superseded or repealed, Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader and Golden Police Chief Bill Kilpatrick will prohibit waterway activities on Clear Creek. These temporary restrictions apply to Clear Creek in unincorporated Jefferson County, as well as those portions of Clear Creek within the City of Golden, including Vanover Park.
    This temporary restriction was made in response to the Stay at Home Order that makes it difficult for recreational users of the creek to adhere to the six-foot social distancing guideline. In addition, if a rescue were necessary, it would require law enforcement and fire departments to expend resources that are already facing challenges due to COVID-19.
    Pursuant to C.R.S. § 33-13-111 and 2 CCR 405-2 #217, the Sheriff of Jefferson County and Golden Police Chief are prohibiting ALL USES in Clear Creek, including all single-chambered air inflated devices, such as belly boats, inner tubes, and single chambered rafts, “body surfers,” and swimming, as well as all vessels, kayaks, whitewater canoes, and multi-chambered river boards.
    Under C.R.S. § 33-13-111 (3), the penalty for violating this restriction is a class 2 petty offense and will result in a fine of $100.00.
