Whitewater in Kentucky

PURPOSE: To Review Conceptual Design Plan

OVERVIEW: The Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Bowling Green are partners on a Conceptual Design master Plan for a Whitewater Course on the Barren River at downtown Bowling Green. The Corps and its consultants - Recreation Engineering and Planning and GEC, Inc - presented preliminary concepts at an evening workshop at the BGMU Annex on Thursday, September 22, 2005.

The preliminary concepts show a series of pools stretching 1,200 feet downstream of the BGMU dam near the State Street bridge. Sixty people attended the workshop, which included an informal presentation and an extended question and answer period. The consultants came away with some guidance from the group to prepare one final conceptual design, which will also include cost estimates. (Click on any of the photos below for a larger version.)
