Press Release: Sali, USDA-RD Announce Plans to Improve Dworshak Recreation Opportunities

April 8th, 2008 by Halli

From the office of Rep. Bill Sali

OROFINO, Idaho – One of Idaho’s favorite recreation areas would be expanded under plans announced today by USDA Rural Development, Congressman Bill Sali and officials from the State of Idaho and Clearwater County. The popular Big Eddy Marina and campgrounds at Dworshak Reservoir near Orofino are receiving a $25,000 Rural Business Enterprise Grant from USDA Rural Development. The money will accompany other state grants and help pay for studies and improvements at the reservoir that include expanded capacity for large boat moorage.

“It’s always exciting when projects build on each other,” said Mike Field, USDA Rural Development State Director in Idaho. “The feasibility study outlined some steps that would encourage economic development in the area and now we can help accomplish those goals.” The project has also been awarded a Gem Community Grant from the state.

Congressman Bill Sali said, “Dworshak Reservoir is already one of Idaho’s most valuable recreation assets, a true Idaho gem, providing a stellar opportunity for family outings, boating, hunting, fishing and camping. The improvements planned for Dworshak will add to the region’s grandeur and economic potential.”

The Dworshak Development Team has identified a wave attenuator as the first priority for an expansion at the Big Eddy Marina. The improvements will allow for larger boat storage and for expansion of the marina overall, which could bring new business and tourism to the area. The attenuator serves as a breaker wall to limit the strength of waves in the marina.

“We’ve been working at this for three years and with the funds from USDA Rural Development and from the Idaho Department of Commerce, we’ll be taking a big step forward with development on Dworshak,” said Chris Kuykendall of Clearwater County Economic Development.
