California’s Modoc National Forest will begin implementing a Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) funded project this week. Several projects were selected for funding through 2021 funds including the Forest-Wide Campground Maintenance Project, according to the Lake County Examiner.

Important repairs and improvements of many recreation site water systems will take place this summer alongside various other campground repairs. Work began on water systems last week. “We’re pleased to kick off our first project funded by the Great American Outdoors Act,” said Forest Engineer Chris Bielecki. “This important work will help repair and improve the unique drinking water systems at various campgrounds across the Modoc. We’ve coordinated with our contractor to minimize inconveniences while also getting this work done promptly.”
