along that same stretch of river, the City of Ann Arbor is finalizing the construction of the new Argo Cascades – they have a nice photo/video collection to show it off.  it looks like it is going to be pretty awesome.  the river clean-up day will help other stretches of the river look great as well.

The City of Ann Arbor is close to completing the construction of the $1.17 million canoe and kayak bypass channel in the Argo millrace. For the first time since 1830 when the channel was built to power mills this section of river will be free-flowing with the portage removed. The channel has been transformed into a series of nine drops and pools for people in tubes, rafts, canoes and kayaks to enjoy. Recently staff tested the drops and final modifications are expected to take place before May.
