Business With PCWA



American River Flows

PCWA currently coordinates with the California Department of Parks and Recreation and a designated commercial whitewater boating representative to schedule Middle Fork Project operations during the summer and early fall to accommodate whitewater recreation in the Middle Fork American River below Oxbow Powerhouse. Whitewater boating releases are scheduled on a voluntary basis such that they do not compromise power production, maintenance activities, or consumptive water deliveries.

The Department of Water Resources website contains Middle Fork American River Flows near Oxbow Powerhouse for the last 2 days.
