Restoring Old Glory With New Whitewater


Posted: 3/24/2013

Chattahoochee River Whitewater

Restoring the Falls of the Chattahoochee – Communities on both sides of the Chattahoochee River have recently improved the river corridor with new Riverwalks and developments, but progress in the river itself has been stalled for decades by two decommissioned textile-mill-era dams. With oversight by the Army Corps of Engineers, these two dams have been removed to reveal the natural whitewater rapids that have been inundated for nearly 200 years. McLaughlin Whitewater Design Group improves upon nature’s design and the whitewater experience by adding a combination of grouted boulder structures, newly excavated channels, a tunable WaveShaper and upgraded access to the river.
