ANIMAS RIVER SNAG/STRAINER - Smelter Rapid

There is a Large Log on River Right 3/4s of the way through the wave trains. This log has already "caught" a few commercial clients, on of which went to the ER. Thankfully no fatalities today. If you have swimmers in Smelter they run the risk of being caught in this SNAG.
At least half the commercial companies are NOT RUNNING Through Smelter right now. No Flip, No Swimmers, No PROBLEM BUT!! If anything Goes wrong... Big Problem!
