The Canyon Dam boat ramp on Lake Almanor will be closed for three days while a contractor for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) unloads and removes a construction barge used to improve a water outlet tower, the company announced today.
The work requires the closure of the Canyon Dam boat ramp Nov. 7-9. The adjacent picnic area and restrooms will remain open.
PG&E replaced a gate stem, which controls one of the three lower gates on the tower. The new gate stem allows for more reliable and smoother operation.
While the Canyon Dam boat ramp is closed boaters may use the nearby Almanor boat ramp, located one mile east of Highway 89 on Almanor Drive West, approximately 6 miles north of Canyon Dam. There is no fee to use this boat ramp. PG&E selected weekday dates for the Canyon Dam boat ramp closure to minimize impacts on recreational use.
PG&E performed a similar gate stem replacement on a different tower gate in 2005. Plans to improve the operation of the third lower gate stem will be announced at a future date.
