BEND, OR -- Winter work begins Monday at Bend's Whitewater Park, managed by the Bend Parks and Recreation District. Access to the Deschutes River will close at 8 a.m. to accommodate crews.
Work includes modifications to the whitewater channel to improve wave features and safety. Crews will increase pool elevations by raising the shoulders of the drops. They'll also grout shoulders to eliminate entrapment problems and install a concrete "floor" to help stabilize waves.
