People living near of visiting the Keystone area of the Medicine Bow National Forest should expect higher than normal flows in Douglas Creek starting on Friday May 11th. Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities spokesman Clint Bassett says the higher flows will be the result of water being released from Rob Roy Reservoir.

Bassett says An easement agreement between the City of  Cheyenne BOPU and the forest service requires the utility to flushing  flow from Rob Roy Reservoir each spring. The flushing helps improve the aquatic habitat of the creek.

On Friday May 11th, flows from Roby Roy Reservoir will increase from around 15 cubic feet per second to around 140 cubic feet per  second. The higher flows will last about three days. Bassett says people living near or visiting the area of Douglas Creek should exercise caution and be aware that flows may rapidly fluctuate.

Rob Roy Reservoir is the largest of the five reservoirs that supply water to Cheyenne.
