The second construction project of the Round Valley Project, Dredging of the Intake Channel at the South Dam tower, originally scheduled to start in late September, will be delayed approximately 4-6 weeks while the Reservoir water level is being drawn down.  Logistical problems during drawdown make it more practical for the contractor to work after the bulk of the drawdown has occurred as opposed to working while the pool is actually being lowered.

Mobilization and site preparation work will occur on a portion of the parking area near the canoe/kayak launch. Additional details about this project and its impacts to Park users may be found in the previous project status update dated September 16 ( An updated schedule with mobilization dates will be announced here as soon as it is known.
