District park rangers want public to know recreating at Mojave River Dam is not authorized
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District Park Rangers Nick Figueroa and Mary Carmona issue parking citations May 17 to owners of several vehicles that were illegally parked adjacent to Corps Mojave River Dam emergency spillway in County of San Bernardino. The area also known as the “Deep Creek Spillway” is located on federal property and is restricted to authorized motor vehicles and personnel. Figueroa and Carmona were visiting the area to contact and advise trespassers they were not authorized to be in the dam area and it is not authorized for recreation. Trespassers are routinely ignoring posted “No Trespassing” signs, perimeter fencing and locked gates to access the area for swimming, camping and off-highway vehicle operation.
