In February of 2012 the City of Farmington and the River Reach Foundation worked together to repair the Rocky Reach Rapid. The purpose of the structure was to ensure irrigation flow to Willett’s Ditch and create a hydraulic wave feature for kayakers and boaters. The original construction in 2000 was successful in creating the desired whitewater feature but over the years, the structure began to be partially undermined by scour. This deterioration increased the danger to the boating public. As a result of this three year project spearheaded by Rick Page, River Reach Foundation member, the feature is once again recreation friendly. Click the image below to see its location on Google Maps.
