Guernsey Reservoir undergoing improvements

GUERNSEY, Wyo. (AP) _ Guernsey Reservoir will be quite a bit lower this year while crews work on improving the reservoir dam.

The park will remain open during the nearly $8 million project. Work to be done will include refurbishing the south spillway, building a filter in the dam embankment near the north spillway and building a new parapet wall on the crest of the dam.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the reservoir will be about 12 feet lower than usual in May and will remain that low through the rest of the summer.

The reservoir is expected to return to normal levels next year.
