Getting out the message
Steve Crawford, a Carson City parks maintenance worker, positions a warning sign Thursday morning at the ‘put in’ site near the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Carson City Field office on Morgan Mill Road. Carson City is posting new information signs on the Carson River this week to advise boaters about whitewater rapids.
The signs are part of the Carson River Aquatic Trail Master Plan to make nearly 14 miles of the Carson River safer and more accessible for rafting, kayaking and canoeing. The plan, approved by the Carson City Board of Supervisors, identifies measures to improve public river access areas, create informational signage and remove hazardous obstacles from the river that could injure rafters and kayakers.
