Davis Beach Intake Station Upgrades 2023

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE (10/2/23):  Davis Beach is under a partial closure during October as reconstruction of the Water Intake Station progresses.   The south access to the park off Lick Creek is currently closed to allow for completion of recent grading and stormwater facilities.  All public access to the Park should be via Diamond Street.  

There is also construction fencing set up along the southern portion of the park (surrounding the intake station) to keep the public out of the building’s construction site.  However, the public should be aware that construction vehicles will be entering and existing the Park (throughout the month) and utilizing the temporary access (off Diamond) to support the building’s reconstruction.  Use of the beach west of the access pathway is allowed.  Please do not block the access pathway.     


Construction Budget: $500,000

Project Funding Source: McCall Water Department
