March 26, 2020

SALT LAKE CITY — In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, Rocky Mountain Power is modifying operations of its recreation sites in Idaho and Utah until further notice.

Rocky Mountain Power is a division of PacifiCorp, which owns and manages hydroelectric resources that offer clean, affordable energy for customers, as well as a variety of public recreation opportunities. The facilities provide boating, swimming, camping and picnicking opportunities.

During the COVID-19 emergency, outlets for appropriately distanced recreation are important, as long as activities are done within state and federal health directives. Rocky Mountain Power appreciates patience from the public as the company works to maintain these opportunities while observing guidelines pertaining to social distancing and safety.
