in Ed Gertler's "Md and Delaware Canoe Trails", Pg 41, Section 9 Violets Lock to Great Falls: "Except for a pair of riffles at the pipeline crossing, the river drifts lazily all the way to Great Falls. Paddlers taking the extreme left side of the river will find find a low weir at the Potomac River Water Filtration Plant."
I suspect it has great eddy service behind the dam, either the whole flat river or behind the weir, LOL, in the deadly backwash of the Dam you can surf forever. Since the guide book author did not detail the surfing possibilities I propose that we name the rapid, the Barbra Brown Potomac River Water Filtration Plant surfing wave. I have spoken so it shall be.
