River Description

American Whitewater is working with South Feather Power and Water in the FERC relicensing process.   We are negotiating to get real time public flow information, and to get recreational whitewater opportunities in this reach.  We are also working with the resource agencies to improve the overall health of this river reach.   AW did conduct a boating flow study for this reach.   Some information from that study is posted in the dreamflows guide linked below.
