Green River, UT diversion dam remodel

Construction will likely be coming soon to the diversion dam just below Swasey's. There is talk of adding a boat passage / fish ladder. I don't know if there is talk of a whitewater park, but with the Moab tourist economy booming it would seem like a great opportunity for GR to pull in a few more people for something other than buying gas.
There is a public scoping meeting on Thursday, November 15th from 6-9pm in the Green River City Hall. I can't make it, but hopefully someone out there can go advocate for a play wave in addition to supporting safe boat passage through the newly shaped low-head dam.

It'd be great for a boat chute to be there. We ran that dam years ago on a Deerlodge to Hite trip, and it was pretty sketchy for both the raft and the kayaks- especially at 20K.

A WW park would be a killer idea for the area. I'd donate.

Anything that would help float through would be great.
