October Hole

I wanted to let everyone know that we are making our final offer to the contractors at the end of this week. We are still short by $3000. If anyone wants to donate money we still need it and can still use your help. We'll send you a tax deductible receipt for your generosity. But better yet we'll build you and all your friends a play spot. We've had people such as Dirk owner of massage specialists donate $300.00 this week. Peter Weingarten $100.00, Joe Keck $37.00 Confluence Kayaks $100.00.....and a few others. Inspite of these people stepping up we are still in need of your contribution. If everyone throws in what they can we can still get this done. Please email me at [email protected] or call 303 229 0070. This is to have kayaking in the Front Range through October 31st every year.

October Hole

How about $50 from 60 people and we'll be done (less than the cost of a single day skiing for years of free boating).

59 to go.

I have a few October hole questions, probably answered in a previous thread.

1) Where is the October Hole? On the St. Vrain up stream or downstream of Lyons?

2) What flows are expected into October?

3) What gage is best to use?

4) Is this a low water feature? What flows will it be fun at?

Cheers!

Dan, Thanks for the donation. If we can get more donations
then the answers to your questions will be

1 St Vrain 0.4 miles downstream from the A-hole
2 >350 cfs
3 Arn?
4 when we get it built we'll know...... hopefully down to 200 cfs and up to FLOOD STAGE!! Isn't that how all play holes are supposed to be?

Thanks also to David for a $100 donation and many others as well, but we still need for many others to step up. We are very close to what we need and bottom line we have very limited time to gather what we can. Construction is set to start VERY shortly and we don't have the funds to do everything we would like too.

Please donate whatever you can... any donations are appreciated. $5??-$500???.

Thanks!

Sorry if this duplicates a previous post. I thought I responded to this last night. There is no exact gage for the "future " October Hole. You will need to add the Black Bear Hole gage on the flow page to the St Vrain Feeder Canal gage, which is this one http://www.dwr.state.co.us/Hydrology...&MTYPE=DISCHRG

You will also need to subtract out an unknown amount that is being diverted to Boulder Reservoir, which can be anything from 0-50% of the St Vrain Feeder Canal gage. You will at least know if the water is running or not.

As for normal flows. I think we should see a total flow of around 300-400 cfs through Sept. Once you get into October then it is more of a function of calls. One day it will be running and the next nothing, but normaly the total flow should be around 200-300 cfs. We are trying to copy the design of the Black Bear Hole a much as we can, which normally should be decent down to about 230 cfs.
