ATTENTION BOATERS!

Due to the current forecast for wet weather, the Tuolumne River Arm debris barrier boom located 5 miles upstream from the Moccasin Pt. Recreation Area has been closed. Two additional downstream debris barrier booms are still open. This boom will be re-opened as soon as conditions permit. These Debris Barrier booms will be periodically opened and closed throughout the rainy season based upon weather and Tuolumne River inflow forecasts.

The old Don Pedro Dam still exists at Don Pedro Lake. Some 220’ under the water of a full lake, the old Don Pedro Dam is 1.5 miles upstream from the current dam’s location. Completed in 1923, it was, at the time, the world’s largest concrete gravity dam. The lake created by the old dam, with its storage capacity of 289.000 acre feet, was only 14% of the capacity of the current lake.
