The Wave Shaper

This is one (of three) wave shapers that is being constructed for the Georgia channel of the river restoration project. I could not photograph all three as I was afraid that I was about to get kicked out (still a construction zone). Anyway, this is what it looks like under the completed Alabama channel that is already open to kayakers and rafters.

I would never have guessed that this was done...

This is the first time I've heard of a wave shaper. Fascinating, but I'm also kind of brokenhearted that that amazing urban river course isn't all natural.

That is very interesting. And I follow both Ciel and Hilda - never would have guessed such a thing would be under a river. However, I'm not "brokenhearted" like Hilda! :-))
