Early Closure of Recreation Sites
When: On May 12, 2023
What: The Recreation Management Plan identifies the recreation facilities under the responsibility of the licensee located at JC Boyle, Copco No. 1 and Iron Gate reservoirs to be closed and decommissioned in the fall of 2023. However, due to public safety concerns, the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) will be accelerating the closure schedule for certain recreation sites.
Why: The need for an accelerated closure schedule is for public safety related to construction traffic road use. The increased construction traffic is due to the Fall Creek Hatchery construction, mobilization of equipment and supplies on Copco Road for pre-drawdown construction, and pending Copco Road maintenance. Installation of traffic controls and additional signage, in consultation with Siskiyou County have helped address some public safety concerns. However, KRRC and our contractors are still observing public safety risks. These risks will only increase with recreation user traffic beginning in the spring. Narrow and winding, Copco Road poses challenges for recreation users navigating heavy equipment and construction traffic with limited visibility.
Where: The following recreation sites located along Copco Road:
- Copco Cove, Copco No. 1 Reservoir
- Fall Creek, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Jenny Creek, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Wanaka Springs, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Camp Creek, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Juniper Point, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Overlook Point, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Mirror Point, Iron Gate Reservoir
- Long Gulch, Iron Gate Reservoir
