FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Placerville, Calif. — EID urges a cautious approach to local streams and rivers. As the weather begins to warm up, the snow at higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada is continuing to melt.

The snowpack is considerably greater this year than it has been in the past four years and it is anticipated that local streams and rivers—including Caples Creek and the South Fork and Silver Fork American River—will be noticeably higher and colder for a longer period than in recent years.

These factors will likely make recreation areas and trail crossings along streams hazardous and unusable well into the summer recreation season.
