— BLOOMINGTON — The Upper Potomac River Commission has scheduled three recreational whitewater releases from Savage River Reservoir for the summer season, according to Adventure Sports Center International.

The releases, based on water availability, will take place June 3, July 1 and Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

ASCI has been working with the UPRC, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, NewPage, G&S Coal, Precision Rafting, Savage River State Forest and Garrett College to arrange paddler parking, shuttle service, put-in and take-out access, release of liability for the stake-holders and removal of dangerous river debris.

“If it were not for the efforts of ASCI to coordinate all the entities involved with this event, it just wouldn’t happen,” said Scott Shoemaker, UPRC superintendent.

All direct expenses related to the shuttle service, registration of private boaters and the removal of dangerous river debris is paid for from donations received from the boaters.

The releases are open to private boaters who are able to to navigate difficult whitewater (American Whitewater Class III+/IV). Others who are seeking the experience should contact a professional whitewater outfitter, such as Precision Rafting, Upper Yough Expeditions or Wilderness Voyagers located in Friendsville.
