Low Water Levels Prompt Kings River Closure to Motorized Vessels

Tulare County’s General Services and Sheriff’s Departments announced today that the Kings River in Tulare County is closed to motorized vessels, such as boats and jet skis, until water levels and rates increase.

Tulare County Parks Manager Neil Pilegard said motorized vessels should not be used in the Kings River until water flows reach 400 cubic feet per second. As of today, water is flowing at a rate between 30- and 50 cubic-feet per-second.

“Operating motorized vehicles in the Kings River with low water levels and rates is dangerous,” Pilegard said. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
