Kids Don't Float Life Jacket Program

New signage, up to 2,500 life jackets ready to loan, several locations where they will be available - all part of the summer water safety program "Kids Don't Float." The kick off is Friday, May 23. Details are in the news release.

Watercraft Advisory:   
The reduced flows in the Sacramento and American Rivers have brought lower levels to boat launches. Larger boats have reportedly hit shallow bottoms or been unable to launch. It is recommended that boaters check the levels at the ramps prior launching.
