Debris Boom Info
In the wake of the Rim Fire, which burned 25% of the Tuolumne River watershed upstream from Don Pedro Lake, there is potential for large amounts of woody debris and sediment to be washed into the lake during significant weather events this winter. Likewise, the Tuolumne River / Don Pedro Lake in the vicinity of Wards Ferry will potentially be subject to flash flooding that carries such sediment and debris downstream. Visitors to Wards Ferry are warned to stay clear of the area during rainfall events in the upstream watershed.
