Great American Outdoors Act Funds Campground Maintenance

Jul 21, 2021

The Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), which was signed into law on August 4, 2020, has been widely supported by the outdoor recreation industry and is the most significant piece of outdoor recreation legislation in over six decades. The RV Industry Association’s federal affairs team has worked to ensure campground modernization is a major part of the implementation of GAOA.

The Modoc National Forest will begin implementing a Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) funded project this week. Several projects were selected for funding through 2021 funds including the Forest-Wide Campground Maintenance Project.

Important repairs and improvements of many recreation site water systems will take place this summer alongside various other campground repairs. Work began on water systems last week. “We’re pleased to kick off our first project funded by the Great American Outdoors Act,” said Forest Engineer Chris Bielecki. “This important work will help repair and improve the unique drinking water systems at various campgrounds across the Modoc. We’ve coordinated with our contractor to minimize inconveniences while also getting this work done promptly.”

Below is a preliminary schedule of when water system repairs will occur. Campgrounds and recreation sites will remain open during repairs; however, potable water will not be available.
