KREMMLING, Colo. (AP) - The federal Bureau of Land Management is asking for public comment on an environmental assessment of the proposed Gore Canyon Whitewater Park at the Pumphouse Recreation Site on the upper Colorado River.

Grand County was recently awarded historic water rights for building the water park. The county has submitted a right of way application with the BLM to build the park.

According to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent (https://tinyurl.com/mznhawz ), the proposed park would include boulders and concrete objects that would not be visible at normal flows and would allow access for fish. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall.
