PG&E Improving Safety along Hat 2 Canal; Area Closed During Work

From PG&E:

BURNEY, Calif.—Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is making safety improvements along a road next to the Hat 2 canal in eastern Shasta County. The area is closed to public access for about six weeks until the project is completed.

A contractor for PG&E will reshape steep bluffs alongside the canal road to reduce the chance of rock falls, slides and other hazards, which pose a safety risk and could put debris into the canal.

To safely do this work, PG&E this week closed public access to the Hat. 2 canal through about October 20.

The Hat Creek Powerhouse No. 2 Road is closed beyond the four-way intersection with Guest Ranch Road.  Due to the road closure, the public will be unable to drive or walk into the area to reach the Hat 2 canal and the northern end of Baum Lake.

Plenty of other fishing areas, such as Hat Creek, most of Baum Lake and areas near Hat Creek Powerhouse No. 1 and its forebay and canal, are still accessible and available for public use.

The Hat 2 canal provides water to generate hydroelectric power at PG&E’s Hat Creek Powerhouse No. 2.
