Low water forces Oregon marina closure

Water levels continue to drop in the Dorena Reservoir.

Water levels continue to drop in the Dorena Reservoir.

Water levels continue to drop in Dorena Reservoir in Lane County, Ore., and the local parks office has told mooring holders and boaters who use Baker Bay Marina that they need to get their boats out by July 17.

“As the water level continues to decline, we want boaters to be aware that unfortunately it will be a short boating season, and we don’t want people with larger boats to be stranded or have difficulty pulling them out of the water,” Brett Henry, Lane County parks manager, said in a statement.

Water levels are decreasing as the United States Army Corps of Engineers, which regulates water levels in the reservoir, releases water to meet downstream requirements for threatened and endangered fish species.

Baker Bay Marina mooring holders will be given the choice to move their boats to Orchard Point Marina on Fern Ridge Reservoir or receive vouchers for 50 percent of the seasonal cost that can be used in 2020.

Baker Bay will remain open for use by smaller boats.
