excavators in the eagle?

Does anybody know why their are three giant excavators in the eagle just above dowd chute? i was driving through minturn this afternoon and stopped to check out why the river was running brown. two excavators upriver of the last bridge and one stacking rocks into large piles just down river of the bridge at the normal dowd chute put in.

any idea if they are thinking of putting in feature or play park?

It's the second part of a river 'restoration' project. The first was a couple of years ago in the town of minturn, at cemetary bridge. It's being paid for by some of the money from the superfund fines.

Give a suggestion

The money was not to be used for recreation, but I heard that they are open to suggestions on where to place a few rocks if you are in the area.

i am no hydrologist, but if a feature were to be made what would it take? i may just stop by to shoot the shit with some of the guys in orange tomorrow.

if a few boulders where to "accidently" drop that would be a real bummer.

maybe one of those play park guys is watching this and wouldn't mind piping in? although it is free advise.
