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.
The Bureau of Reclamation seeks to raise the height of the dam by 18.5 feet, further inundating the McCloud and Upper Sacramento Rivers at great cost to California taxpayers. American Whitewater submitted comments today opposing the proposal because of the negative impacts to recreation and riparian habitat. Comments are being accepted through Monday, January 28th, and we encourage you to weigh in!
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!
