Improve Water Supply at Lost Creek Campground and Volcano Adventure Camp

Lassen Volcanic National Park » Improve Water Supply at Lost Creek Campground and Volcano Adventure Camp » Document List

The NPS is proposing to improve Lassen Volcanic National Park's water treatment system for Lost Creek Group Campground and Volcano Adventure Camp. This project would replace the surface water collection system with a subsurface source. If well drilling is successful, a small pump, water tank, and treatment building would be constructed to serve these campgrounds.

The project is needed because during short periods, use of water from Lost Creek is intermittently interrupted by a flush of volcanic ash-laden sediment released from within the ground near the spring-fed origin of Lost Creek. At these times, the water does not meet state drinking water standards and water must be trucked to serve the Lost Creek and Volcano Adventure campgrounds.
