Big Cliff Reservoir levels to decrease during survey

Published June 15, 2017

PORTLAND, Ore. –Water levels at Big Cliff Reservoir will be lower June 19 and 20 to allow the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct an archaeological survey.

The water drawdown will begin June 16 and reach approximately 1180 feet by 8 a.m. June 19. This is about two feet lower than typical low levels at Big Cliff. Corps regulators will hold the reservoir at that level until approximately 8 p.m., June 20.

Lower water levels may expose boaters and other reservoir users to vegetation and other potential hazards that are normally submerged well below the water surface. People recreating at the reservoir should be alert for these hazards as well as floating debris. Public safety is the Corps’ first priority.

The reservoir will be back to normal levels, June 21.

For questions or concerns, please contact Environmental Stewardship Coordinator Wendy Jones at 541-221-7694.
