PGE Parks and COVID-19

The safety of park visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is very important to us. In late March, we temporarily closed our recreation sites to support local, state and federal public health orders. We took a phased approach to reopening, beginning in late May, and now all PGE parks are open except for Faraday Lake, which is closed until the spring of 2021 for construction.

We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local public health authorities and our recreation partners as we operate our park and recreation facilities.

Visitors to parks are asked to practice physical distancing from those outside their immediate party.

To help protect visitors’ health and safety, we are keeping campground showers and large-group communal areas closed, increasing the frequency of facilities cleaning and disinfecting, posting signage to promoting physical distancing, and scheduling additional staff.

The company is also working with concessionaires at PGE Parks to help them follow CDC safety guidelines.

Building a better Oregon

Our parks, adjacent to our hydroelectric plants, are an important piece of our environmental stewardship efforts. The peaceful recreation you can enjoy at these wonderful locations goes hand in hand with our efforts to protect fish and other precious resources.

Recreating safely near dams

Along with generating clean energy, our dams provide excellent places for fishing, boating, camping and more. However, recreation near dams, reservoirs and powerhouses presents potential risks. It is important to understand the hazards and safety measures for recreating near hydroelectric projects.
