River dangers grow as water levels fall lower


FOLSOM - Bystanders at a popular jumping cliff on Lake Natoma had to help an injured man who leaped from China Wall, but never made it into the water.

"Kids like to jump off of it. You have to jump quite a ways out to clear the actual cliff. So if you don't jump out far enough, you hit the cliff," Folsom firefighter Clint Madden said.

Madden was part of the water rescue team that carried the man to an ambulance. The man, who is in his 30s, did not suffer life-threatening injuries and was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment.

Firefighters said the popular jumping spot can be dangerous even for those who make the leap all the way into the water.

Folsom Dam operator will float pumps if lake drops too low


FOLSOM - The Bureau of Reclamation is preparing a barge with 11 floating pumps to continue providing tap water to hundreds of thousands of people if the level of Folsom Lake drops below the water supply outlet built into the dam.

"We're just making a prudent decision now based on what could happen," Bureau spokesperson Erin Curtis said.

The Bureau first began considering floating pumps last year as the lake approached a record low level of 357 feet above sea level -- just 40 feet above the center of the outlet that provides domestic water to the cities of Roseville and Folsom, Folsom Prison and the San Juan Water District.

The plan was shelved when late season rain and snowmelt brought the lake level up 68 feet by early May.
