USGS lists a sampling site here with drainage area of 579 square miles.
That makes drainage area here just 6% more than at Somerset, so we are using the same 'virtual gauge' as we established for Somerset. Correlation is not assured. Flow *may* be affected by the dam. On-site inspection required to confirm runnability.
A gauge which apparently may have measured outflow below the powerplant now appears to have gone offline. There will be flow in the bypassed channel only when incoming natural flow exceeds penstock/powerplant capacity. We have no awareness of any gauge or markers for runnability. Anyone with knowledge of this reach is encouraged to help out fellow boaters by providing a comment or report, with photos, if you have them.
Permits are not required for this reach.
Since this is a fairly short reach (just about a half-mile) if/when it is boated, it will most generally be a park-and-play, walking the obvious 'shuttle' back to your vehicle. Howwever, you can use the text-entry box below to get drive time, distance, and directions from your home or other starting location.
If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
