Sure Chris, I'll put you on my list to send a reprint to.

Ken, after getting more info on those NH sites, they don't count. I should have been more clear... - I'm only looking for sites where there is instream modification of the river channel such as drop structures placed for recreation purposes... not just boat ramps, put/in takeout improvements.

thx all.

thanks for this info. From the AW page it looks like the weirs were primarily placed to protect aquatic biota from ive sedimentation after removal of a small dam, but that boater input for weir placement and design was considered to make the weirs good for kayaking. That's really interesting - I'll include it in my list as a special case - not principally built as a whitewater park, but still relevant. Nice.

funny I had forgotten this .... I originally got involved studying this subject when i did a fisheries study related to the Carbondale wwp. I'm not sure of the status, I'll ask Gary Lacy and co.

There is a new water park in Pueblo CO. that was actually designed as a fish ladder. This feature inludes 8 drops totalling 11 feet. It replaced a low-head dam that prevented fish from traveling upriver. This project is nearly complete as part of an 8 million dollar habitat restoration project. It was overseen through the Corps of Engineers Albequerque district.Gary Lacey was the designer of this part of the project.

I'm pretty sure there is a park in the planning stages on the Spokane River in Spokane, WA. I should say that I'm pretty sure some people in Spokane are dreaming of a ww park; I don't really know if it's anywhere close to the planning stage--but I'm hoping!

Adventure Sports Center International

You've got Wisp, Maryland on your list of proposed sites that you couldn't find info on. Wisp is actually the ski resort located there near McHenry & Deep Creek Lake. The Adventure Sports Center International will be (to the best of my knowledge) either at the top of the ski hill or on the premesis close by. Either way, they're the same entity. Can't wait for it to be completed next year though.

Flipover- Is that true? I am from Lawrence and always thought the Kaw would make a great place for a whitewater park right underneath the bridge near downtown. I saw it at over 100,000 cfs a few years ago and it looked insane coming over the dam. Twenty foot High terminal hydraulic. Are you even talking about the Kaw or would it be on the Wakarusa? Let me know if there is anyway I could help.
