California State Parks Postpones Waterline Improvement Project at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve
Guerneville, Calif.—California State Parks announces that the proposed Waterline Improvement Project at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve will be postponed. The department determined that a long-term planning document, referred to as a general plan, will be prepared and approved before moving forward with improving the existing antiquated and failing water system in a portion of the reserve, so as to ensure that the Reserve is properly planned. This will allow public input and a cohesive vision assessing the framework for interpretation, resource stewardship, facilities, visitor use and operations of the Reserve.
Contract negotiations for consultant work on the General Plan are expected to be completed this month. Until the General Plan is completed and approved, California State Parks will continue maintaining the existing waterline system at the Reserve.
