|Posted: Apr 11, 2019Post Subject: Slab Creek Flows this Weekend 4/13 & 4/14
|Just a reminder that this weekend there will be Slab Creek Recreational Flows required by SMUD's Hydropower License. Tomorrow's flow target is 1000 cfs but keep in mind coordinating spill over a dam is not an exact science so check your river gauges!!|
During the 2019 Slab Creek recreation streamflow releases, the USFS will be managing the parking and access activities at the put-in at Slab Creek Dam. Gates should be open from approximately 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. While the USFS has determined the road is safe for travel, caution should be exercised given the recent wet winter.
Similarly, a contractor, under the direction of the BLM, will be managing the parking and access activities at the take-out at Rock Creek powerhouse (10441 Rock Creek Rd.). Gates should be open from approximately 6:30 am until 5:30 pm. A reminder that there is no legal boater take out from PG&E’s Chili Bar Reservoir. The interim take out facility at Rock Creek Powerhouse is the last opportunity for boaters to exit the river.
