Granted, it’s not the best photo, given the late afternoon light, but it does show the status of the work as of Monday, Sept. 19, 2016 on the Basalt whitewater park on the Roaring Fork River. Cobble dams are being created to send the flow of the river into a bypass channel so two wave-producing structures can be embedded in the river. The excavator was exiting the river after a day’s work.
