El Dorado County adopted an updated River Management Plan in 2018 to improve the County's management of whitewater recreation on the
South Fork of the American River below Chili Bar Dam. The County's goals are to preserve the river corridor's environmental resources; protect the area's rural character; reduce conflicts between residents and boaters; and maintain a quality whitewater boating experience.
