Re: Pulp mill lower Caddo east of Amity AR

Yarbrough, Carbon offsets are one of many ways to compensate forest owners for their investments and the benefits from their forests. The rest of your comment seems inappropriate for a project that will change the future of Arkansas. I don’t understand what you are trying to say. Please post your op...

Have you guys seen this innovative play spot

Hey Folks, I follow Peter Czonka on Facebook and see this play spot often in his posts. Its a channel with a low volume flow. The locals have tuned the flow in such a way to create a very dynamic play spot. https://www.facebook.com/petercsonkakayak/videos/1028891487134156/ I just wonder if there is ...

Re: Fayetteville Kayak Park

The fact of life is that the dam at Pump Springs Rd. is going to come out. It is old and failing. If the stream bed is going to be restored, why not restore it in a way that when the flows are correct WW waves are created. From what I see the location rarely has a flow greater than 300 CFS. And hau...

Re: Fayetteville Kayak Park

Hey Folks, I think that many people should be curious about this topic. I took a look at the site and it seems to me that the best gauge I could find for this river is located is here; http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/inventory/?site_no=07048550" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Is it tru...

Re: Progress on Fisher's Ford Park

I am not so sure about "well worded". Perhaps more like rambling and barely coherent! Anyway I am really happy to hear that there will be some tuning later. Like I said I dont want be to premature in my comments. At the same time I dont want to regret not having said them either. I would just love t...

Re: Progress on Fisher's Ford Park

Thanks so much for posting pictures.... So in your opinion does this represent the final product? Its always tough to tell from photos and water levels and so on but this looks super.... Boring. I may get flamed for saying that and it maybe premature. But since the engineers are on hand with the equ...

Re: Progress on Fisher's Ford Park

Thanks so much for the photos and update! A twenty foot wide play wave does not sound like it will be very dynamic unless there is a significant amount of water. Are we sure they cant concentrate that flow some? Honestly I would prefer a feature that is 6 feet wide and is retentive than a 20 foot wi...

How are things looking so far?

Have they started moving rocks around in the riverbed?

Re: Progress on Fisher's Ford Park

So fired up over the sense of optimism and the hard work that is put in. I agree the fast pace is more than likely a really good thing. The nature of my post really is not to rain on that at all. Only to run ahead and make sure the potential for failure is mitigated as fully as possible. Keep up the...

Re: Progress on Fisher's Ford Park

My experience with REP that the quality of the features will depend largely on who the project manager is. Mike Harvey is awesome and is mostly responsible for all of the great features in the Arkansas Valley. However when REP did work on a feature in Lawson on Clear Creek that it was a massive deba...

Re: Beaver Dam CFS Info

Eric, Thanks so much for posting a response. I would like to look back and get a feel for what are the average various flows coming out of Beaver dam. Yesterday it appears that it it was at 20 CFS and then went up to 3,500 CFS. Apparently it can go up to 8,000 CFS. I would like to know how long thes...

Beaver Dam CFS Info

Does anybody know of a good source to find out what the CFS values are on an hourly basis for Beaver Dam? I cant find a guage on the USGS site. And it seems like just about every other form of date for Beaver Dam is reported except for CFS.

What do you folks think?

Thanks!
