by Kevin Colburn

The Army Corps of Engineers announced that they will be providing an 800 cfs release on Maryland's Savage River on Sunday, May 28th, from 9am to 3pm.  The release is the result of maintenance activities but is scheduled to support recreational boating.  Please check the following link prior to attending the release, to assure it has not been modified or cancelled.

The Savage River, once a major whitewater boating destination, has recieved little use in recent years due to dam regulated flow manipulations.  Efforts are ongoing to explore opportunities to restore at least some paddling opportunities to the Savage River.  For now, enjoy this rare opportunity!
