Rapid Descriptions

Broken Dam

Class - IV Mile - 0
Rapid Thumbnail Missing
Broken dam with a sluice on the right. I'd guess it's about 8 ft. high. Boof onto shallow water and punch the hole under the bridge.

Lover's Falls

Class - 5.0 Mile - 0
Rapid Thumbnail Missing
Boof the 3 ft. ledge at the top on the far right. Ride down the right side of the slide and boof at the end. I doubt you'd want to be in the center of the V. Also beware of the room of doom in the river left wall.

Video of members of the Cornell Outing Club running Broken Dam and Lover's Falls at about 600 cfs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naNBZKBQYAE

Gage Descriptions

I've only run it at 500 cfs. I'd think you could do it a little bit lower than that and a good deal higher, maybe 350-1000 cfs.

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

1/3/2020
Bob Nasdor

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
