Document - Clackamas River Hydroelectric Project: An Assessment of Potential Playboating Locations

Abstract

Whitewater boaters involved in PGE’s Clackamas relicensing process have suggested there may be opportunities to develop or enhance whitewater recreation, particularly kayak playboating, through channel modifications. This report evaluates potential sites, lists their advantages and disadvantages, and reviews issues to be considered if the utility, agencies, and/or stakeholders choose to pursue the idea further.

Description
