Popular Snake River Beach South Of Colfax To Remain Closed Until Further Notice

A popular Snake River beach South of Colfax has now been closed until further notice.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in consultation with the Garfield County Health Department and Sheriff’s Office in Pomeroy have decided to keep Illia Dunes closed.  The consensus decision from the entities is based on ensuring visitor safety at the dunes.

Federal officials say the beach will reopen when it is determined safe to do so.
