IDNR Involvement: Provided a $200,000 Dam Mitigation Grant
Construction began in September of 2014 on the $1.8 million project. The new whitewater facility was funded in part by a $200,000 dam mitigation grant from the Iowa DNR. The whitewater park stimulates the local economy through increased use from paddlers, anglers and outdoor recreationalists including families who come down to picnic and watch at water’s edge. New local businesses rent out kayaks and inner tubes to tourists. Iowa's second whitewater park is another example of what can be done by removing or modifying low-head dams. Be sure to come up and bring the entire family for the fun on June 18th at the 2nd annual "Let It Flow" Riverfest.
