Contractor is Colorado Riverworks, aka Ted Seipel Construction. Same as Vail Bladders and a bunch of others. Guy you chatted with in the Trackhoe (Brian) is a Jedi with rocks.

It's definitely pretty scary to mess with a feature people are fundamentally pretty happy with. After getting a "what do you think?" I was pretty much no help at all. And unless it starts snowing like mad soon, we won't know how higher water performance has been effected until 2014.

Isn't the contractor following plans drawn up by the engineering firm approved by the project manager (City of Glenwood?) to address a certain need for construction? It doesn't seem like those plans would be changed based on sideline engineering at this stage.

I noticed yesterday that they were now working on the Two Rivers boat ramp with a back-hoe. Anyone know what they are doing? I'm guessing just bank stablization.

Whitewater Park Trackhoe Work

Tom Barnes of the Glenwood Springs Recreation Dept says the workers at the Glenwood Springs Whitewater Park are doing shoreline maintenance. The high water of 2011 undercut both banks here. (It also buckled parts of the concrete bike trail in Glenwood Canyon.) The crews now are rebuilding and stabilizing the terracing on each side of the river. The trackhoe operator thought he would improve the eddy on the south side and moved some boulders around in the water. But this is beyond the current permitted work, so the rocks had to be returned to their original positions. They expect to be done this week. The next project is to create a pedestrian path on the south side of the river under the bridge. During that work, there may be the opportunity for moving boulders to improve the eddy.
