Our license to operate the Jackson Hydro Project includes a provision to provide an average of three opportunities for whitewater boating per year. Scheduled events typically occur in the spring (typically April), summer (August), and early fall (September), and have a weeks’ advance notice.
Boaters should pre-register indicating intent to participate in our whitewater boating event. Please pre-register with your name, address, phone number, and email address below (all fields are required). If the event is cancelled due to limited interest (pre-registration of less than 6 individuals), you will be notified by phone or email.
Before you participate, you must fill out, sign and return the PUD Whitewater Release form (see Related Documents to the right). Completed forms must be delivered to the PUD staff person, stationed at the put-in location, on the day of the event. Upon receipt of a completed form, you will be issued a numbered, yellow wrist-band. This wrist-band is required and mandatory for all persons intending to participate in the event.
