The purpose of this web page is to promote public health and safety by helping people decide to use the bike trail or enter the river when it is most likely to be safe.
It’s a good idea to check bike trail conditions before you go, especially if it has rained lately. Some trails are located within the levee systems that protect our cities from high water—and that means trail sections might be under water after rain or storms.
To safely engage in water sports, river users should know water conditions before entering the water. Rain events can cause water to become too high or too swift for recreation.
The map’s color-coded symbols are set up just like a traffic signal, making it easy to read. In Green and Yellow Zones: You must judge safety based on today's combination of wind, weather, water temperature, flotsam, current, boat size, skill and presence of a safety launch. IF IN DOUBT, DON'T GO OUT.
