Elkhorn River Shut Down for Holiday Weekend

(7-2-14) No boating, canoeing, tanking or tubing on the Elkhorn River over the fourth. Access to the river in eastern Nebraska will continue to be restricted through the July 4th weekend because of dangerous high water. The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District has closed all the Elkhorn River access points in Douglas County. General manager John Winkler says boating on the river remains dangerous. He says if the river returns to normal levels, the access points could be reopened next week. The river has been at or near flood stage since the five to seven inch rains two weeks ago.
