Corps warns of hazards in lake beds
December 5, 2018
Due to low water levels in many Corps reservoirs in the Willamette Valley, officials are warning reservoir users of potential hazards.
The low levels, a result of low precipitation this fall, are exposing soft, muddy areas of lake bed, which could pose a danger to users. The surface of Green Peter Reservoir was at 904 feet above sea level, down roughly 106 feet from its full pool, on Nov. 26.
Due to these potential hazards, Corps officials request that reservoir users avoid these areas for their own safety.
The Corps will temporarily close areas when necessary to address safety concerns....
