There have been some more changes to Rodeo Rapid on the Buller.
The log that caused the death of Tim Jamieson in February last year has been removed.
There has been some moving around of boulders in the riverbed too. Opus consultants have moved some boulders into the top of Roller Coaster (the rapid immediately below Rodeo) which has formed a sort of boulder platform. At current low flows this isn't a problem, but these boulders may create some interesting holes at higher flows.
