GRANT COUNTY, WA - The Grant County Sheriff's Office wants to remind Memorial Day travelers heading to the Columbia River area in Grant County of the temporary shoreline closures above Wanapum Dam to below Rock Island Dam.

All Grant County PUD, WDFW and Washington State Parks access points on the Wanapum shoreline and reservoir are closed to the public right now for public safety and to protect culturally sensitive sites. There will be increased patrols along the shoreline at all hours and anyone found on the shoreline will be cited for criminal trespass. 

There are great places to enjoy time in the sun just below Wanapum Dam and throughout our county. For a list of recreation sites that are currently open on the river visit: http://www.grantpud.org/community/rec-area-maps
