Two state-of-the-art waveshapers are the highlights of the $3.6 million project, which opened in 2012. Pneumatically-operated air bladders inflate to elevate stainless steel flashboards. Raising and lowering the flashboards controls upstream water levels.
At normal river flows, the adjustable waveshapers create an approximately 20-foot wide primary wave and a longer 25-foot secondary wave suitable for "green wave" surfing.
