The new Pitkin County Healthyrivers Whitewater Park is much more than a play park. It helps to keep the Roaring Fork River flowing year round!
On average, 47,000 acre feet of the upper Roaring Fork annual flow is diverted through to the Front Range. In consideration of increasing demand on our water resources, and the potential impacts of climate change, Pitkin County Healthy Rivers has implemented a Recreational In-Channel Diversion (RICD) using the park. The RICD confers to Pitkin County the right to call water down the Roaring Fork to the project site.
