Auburn City Council Dam Resolution Action Alert!
Auburn City Council Meeting
Monday, March 27th 6:00 PM
Auburn City Hall 1225 Lincoln Way
The Auburn City Council is scheduled to consider a resolution that opposes the Auburn Dam in support of the American River and all the benefits it brings to our communities - especially the social, recreational and economic benefits.
We need to fill the City Council Chambers to standing room only with American River supporters.
The Auburn Dam site, aka China Bar, has essentially been abandoned. The diversion tunnel was closed. The river is restored to its natural channel with whitewater features and opened to the public in 2008. PCWA built and operates a state of the art pumping station.
PARC is currently advocating for expanded days use at China Bar and recreational amenities at the former dam site that include a recreational bridge crossing of the river linking the Auburn and Cool Area trails.
