During our initial review of the project we asked the public for input through a survey. One of the key inputs was to address the possibility of recreation opportunities including a whitewater park or wave feature. After addressing the key purpose of the weir, which is to establish a water supply for environmental purposes (i.e. fish), we did a review of the possibility of a whitewater recreational feature and determined it wasn’t feasible with the summer flows and within the works of the weir structure.
Additionally, the granted funds were for the original intent of conservation and not for designing of additional recreational features.
