Water takes out dock at local livery
Sterling — Waters on the Rifle River rose steadily over the weekend.
On Sunday evening the national weather service said that the Rifle River had reached it's flood stage level at six feet, and that it was expected to rise to six point two feet.
Rifle River Campground Manager Laurie Laurie Richardson said that the river was moving so fast that they lost their dock to the current.
"I’ve been here 45-years and we’ve never lost a dock," she said until the campgrounds dock floated away late Sunday night. "It rose a good six feet. I've never seen it rise so fast.”
