South Park Fairgrounds




Here's a view of Catfish Run as it passes the fairgrounds in South Park County Park. Channelizing and straightening a stream can cause problems downstream of the channel. During storm events water flows more quickly in a channel than in a natural meander and develops more destructive force. Also, when the water leaves the channel its velocity drops quickly and silt and pollutants suspended in the water column drop out; forming sedimentation.
