CORP OF ENGINEERS:
Work needs to be done on the water line in the park and paving of the driveway, improving parking at North Santiam Park. Two rangers are needed this year in the park. Applications will be accepted. Lake water level went below the normal winter level of 1450' and that caused the winter ramp to be closed to boating till the water levels came back to. Need to post changes to the water level on the park site and the ODFW site so boaters can be aware if the ramps are closed.
