Rio Vista Falls Maintenance Project
The Falls on the San Marcos River at Rio Vista Park will be open for use beginning on Saturday, May 7, 2022. The Falls were closed for repair in October of 2021. Most of the fencing will be removed from the area except for the work staging area and portions of the sidewalk that will be repaired in the coming week. Maintenance included repairing voids, undercutting, and deepening the foundation toe of the bank and instream structures. A protective layer of rock armoring around the foundation was also installed. The maintenance strategy will provide a more robust system of protection against river currents and future floods.
