A new way to paddle the Catawba

Chris Jackson has a vision for bringing life to Rock Hill’s stretch of the Catawba River.
A self-described kayaking nut, Jackson thinks he’s found a way to turn the Catawba into a haven for paddlers, maybe even a place for training and competitive events.
The idea: Install concrete shapes to create chutes along a designated portion of water. Then let the river handle the rest.
When Duke Energy releases water from the Lake Wylie dam, the flow would generate Rock Hill’s own whitewater rapids, with no ongoing costs or maintenance required.
