By constructing rock structures below the weir, the water level will be backed up to eliminate the deadly recirculation. The backed-up water will drop over a series of short swifts followed by calm pools. Using an existing small island below the weir, the river will be divided into two channels: a gentle channel to the south (river right) and a more challenging channel to the north (river left). Signage and design features will be used to encourage people floating down the river to use the south channel. More advanced canoeists and kayakers will be able to practice their skills on several waves on the north channel. Fish will also be able to travel up and down both channels, and features will be included in the area to allow school groups to learn about local ecosystems and to enjoy recreational opportunities.
