PORTLAND, Ore. – Due to multiple fires burning throughout the Willamette Valley, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District is closing all* of the recreation areas it manages near its dams.

The Corps’ primary concern is maintaining safe operations for our people and critical infrastructure. The District will continue to staff facilities and project sites if it is safe to do so to ensure power production, water outflows and recreation opportunities.

“The wildfires burning throughout Oregon can be fast-moving and unpredictable,” said Tami Schroeder, Portland District park manager. “It is very important to check conditions before traveling to recreation areas, as local authorities can issue evacuation orders and close roads when conditions change, sometimes with little to no notice. The Corps will close areas if they become part of an evacuation zone.”

Current recreation site status and updates can be found on the Portland District website at www.nwp.usace.army.mil/recreation-status.
