GRAHAM COUNTY — Bureau of Land Management is warning recreators to be careful in the area of Hot Well Dunes.

Rain over the last few days have flooded the Tanque crossing on Haekel Road. With more rain expected this week, there is an increased risk of more flooding.

The road and recreation area remain open; however, the hot tubs are closed, as is the Tanque crossing until the rain moves off and repair work can be completed.
