hiskeytown Lake seeing increase in debris one year after Carr Fire

The whiskeytown national recreation area is still recovering from the carr fire.

As elizabeth zelidon reports..

The "burned area emergency response" team outlined exactly how much work they have to put in..

Before parts of the park can re-open.

### (nats)) new video from whiskeytown national park.... shows massive amounts of debris on the lake and shore.

(pause) sot: "following the carr fire there is not much vegetation left on the slopes holding the soil and rocks and things in place so every time we have had some precipitation things are coming down."

But all this debris isn't just from the carr fire.

An almost record snowfall in february - and above average rainfall brought more debris from the hills around whiskeytown lake.

(pause) rangers spent most of the spring clearing the massive amount of debris from the beaches so visitors could enjoy the lake.

(nats) sot: its still beautiful i mean my family comes out here at least once a year and its still as beautiful as i remember it.

Some even found a bright side to the situation.

Sot: we use the logs as floaties so really its actually a plus rangers say while the debris does clutter up the area it's pretty much harmless.

And every beachgoer we spoke with on monday said a little harmless debris won't keep them away.

Sot: dont let it stop your summer its still absolutely beautiful the water is prestine and wonderful the kids like it and its really easy access and jsut do it ya just do it.

Rangers at whiskeytown do want to remind everyone if it does rain or there is a risk for debris flow, that area of the park will be evacuated.
