Silt fills pool at Jerry Johnson Rec Site

     The upper (largest) hot spring pool at Jerry Johnson recreation site, located along Highway 12 on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests, was completely filled with silt and debris from heavy rains and high runoff on or about March 17.

     While visitors are obviously anxious to resume soaking, we ask that you allow natural hydraulics in the area to settle so forest staff can determine if this event affected the location and/or flow of the geothermal springs.  After spring flows level off, the site will be assessed to determine what management is appropriate.

     Please help protect the integrity of this special place and allow natural processes to proceed by not disturbing the ground or digging holes in the debris.  There is no guarantee you’ll find a “hot” spot where one previously existed, particularly while ground saturation is high.  Damaging natural features can result in a fine of $250 (36 CFR 261.9(a)).

     If you’d like to assist with future site maintenance as a volunteer, please contact the Kooskia Ranger Station at (208) 926-4274.
