Say it ain't so

Is the Steamboat C Hole really busted?!? Nobody could get anything done in it this afternoon.

Was this the result of "maintenance" or did the town actually try to change the feature? Who did the work?

the ultimate let down

R.E.P. did the work i.e. Lacy. They lowered the left wing by over a foot. They were supposed to be repairing the hole and restoring it to its original specs to comply with our RICD. Apparently they don't own a site level or a camera because they didn't even come close to putting it back correctly. Joneser has some before and after pics. Record snowpack in Steamboat, and now at flows above 1300ish the wave greens out and is barely surfable. Im just disapointed. I thought there was more science to the process.

C-Hole was a flushy glass wave, but the wave behind it was awesome yesterday! The D hole was fun, but a little munchy. Our only hope is that over 2 grand the hole starts to form again... we'll see about that!

Not an expert on CO water law, but what does the shape of a in-stream feature have to do with an RICD? I thought RICD's were related to in-stream flow volume, not water elevation? Is there a diversion nearby that's being affected?

would appear to be human error, perhaps not intentional

I was under the impression that the City of Steamboat obtained there RICD right for that structure based on an engineered plan. Last fall when REP "fixed" it we were all told they were going in to restore C-hole to its original specs due to the fact that a bunch of the rocks had shifted. Joneser lets see those pics!
