Clear CreekWheat Ridge, CO ~ Community Service Officers with the Wheat Ridge Police Department are asking all patrons along Clear Creek in the Greenbelt or city parks to be aware of the potential for high water in those areas.

Because of high temperatures and increased snow melt in the high country and along the front range, Clear Creek’s potential for rising, swift water and flash flooding increases greatly. The warming temperatures expected to cause rapid snow melt which can result in swollen river banks and flooded footbridges.

Clear CreekAlthough the Wheat Ridge Police Department’s Community Services Officers will be monitoring the water levels through Wheat Ridge, residents and park visitors should be on the lookout for rising waters and should never attempt to cross flooded paths or bridges.

Our Community Service Officers also suggest that everyone exercise extreme caution when playing near Clear Creek’s edge, especially when small children are involved.
