Default Morrison Springs?

Has anyone dove it recently? I know it has rained a good bit recently, so how is the clarity? I am wanting to dive it this weekend to check my gear out for this summer. Any reports would help. Thanks guys.

The last I heard, it wastemporarily closed by the county due to high bacteria counts. This happened becauseof runoff caused byheavy rains. Thislast round of rain hasn't helped, I'm sure.

I've dived it a couple of times in the lastfew weeks and it was beautiful. You will love it when they open it back up.

I live right up the road from Vortex and yes its open but Morrison is still closed due to the bacteria....the river has been up for a while which makes it nasty and poor viz and is back above flood stage again and still rising. Prolly be a little while till its good again. Mickey

Last Sunday, viz at Vortex was about 3 feet unless you went down into the cavern. The buoys marking the pads wereunder two feet of water from flooding. Vortex clears up fast and should be OK with a couple days without rain. Have you considered Pickens?
