A large amount of vegetation floats down the river and can accumulate on objects in the river, as it did on the anchor chain of a large buoy.

Buoy at East Spillway

The East Spillway is a secluded area up river, people will gather there, sometimes playing in the shallow water and with rocks there. A buoy was added to advise visitors to: LEAVE ROCKS ALONE FOR CRITTERS THEY ARE HOMES. Sally Salamander wraps around the sides of the buoy.

Buoys in flood conditions

Heavy rains caused flooding that raised the river almost 5 feet—the buoys survived!
