A concrete barrier is being constructed to divert the Yampa River flow so work can be done on Charlie’s Hole. Friends of the Yampa, a community organization with a passion for the Yampa River has worked with the city to make the repairs possible. The nonprofit group is hosting a fundraiser Saturday to raise funds to add more features to the river. Organizers set a goal of raising $7,500 to $10,000 at the event.
