PG&E to increase flows for whitewater recreation on North Fork Feather River
July 22, 2013 — Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will increase water flows for whitewater recreation in the Rock Creek Reach of the North Fork of the Feather River in Plumas County during three weekends, the company announced recently.
The Rock Creek Reach is the 8.3-mile portion of the North Fork of the Feather River in the Plumas National Forest between PG&E’s Rock Creek Dam and the Rock Creek Powerhouse near Storrie.
The higher flows will occur July 27 and 28, Aug. 24 and 25 and Sept. 28 and 29. Those recreating in or near the river are encouraged to use extra caution during the increased flows.
Prior to the increase for July 27 and 28, flows in the Rock Creek Reach will be about 210 cubic feet per second (cfs). Starting at about 6 a.m. Saturday, July 27, PG&E will gradually increase water flows until it reaches 800 cfs, about three hours later. The flows will be held at 800 cfs until about 3 p.m. that day as flows are gradually reduced to 700 cfs.
Starting at about 2 p.m. Sunday, July 28, flows will be gradually decreased until reaching about 210 cfs later that day.
The recreational flows for the last full weekends in August and September will have similar ramp up rates, both also reaching 800 cfs on the two Saturdays.
The recreational flows are done in cooperation with American Whitewater and the Rock Creek–Cresta Ecological Resource Committee.
