City of Durango warns about increasing Animas River flows


DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE) – The City of Durango is warning people about increasing flows in the Animas River.

The city recently made some changes near the Santa Rita intake near Whitewater Park.

Officials said the improvements shifted the flow of the river creating a new rapid in the area.

The city is recommending people not familiar with the dynamics to use a guide or someone who is experienced.

That section of river is not recommended for inner tubes or what are known as single chamber inflatables.
