Whitewater Park for Waterloo, Iowa

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, “communities around Iowa have embraced the idea that replacing high maintenance and failing dams with lower-cost, safer alternatives can also be great for the river and fishing, while better serving recreational needs of today’s Iowans.” One dam targeted for modification is the Park Ave. dam on the Cedar River in Waterloo. The ACA Stewardship Department sent a letter to the Mayor and City Council supporting plans to modify a section of this dam to lessen the hazard of drowning in the backflow plus create a whitewater park similar to others in the state. These parks have proven to benefit paddlers, anglers, tubers and local businesses such as liveries and restaurants.
