Marine Board Approves Grant for Klamath County
For Immediate Release -4/13/12
The Marine Board approved a grant for the Klamath County Parks Department to replace the existing flush restroom with a single stall vault toilet at Hagelstein Park on Upper Klamath Lake. The Marine Board approved the grant at its quarterly Board meeting on April 11, in Springfield.
Upper Klamath Lake is the largest fresh-water lake in Oregon. It is used for all types of boating activities and draws boaters from around and outside the state. Hagelstein Park is a popular facility for anglers and hunters and provides the only access to the mid-lake area on the east side. The existing flush restroom was constructed in 1963 and is well beyond the limits of reasonable life expectancy. With the recent revitalization of Barkley Springs, this site will attract even more visitors. Recognizing that the restroom offers convenient service to highway travelers as well as loyal boaters, the county will replace the high maintenance flush restroom with a single stall low maintenance vault restroom.
Klamath County was awarded $38,150 in state boater funds, which will be combined with $19,850 in force account equipment and labor contributions from the county. The projected total cost is $58,000.
