Those who love to white water raft might get a new place to practice their sport.

ComEd is making plans to turn over a 6.5-acre site and dam along the Rock River so the city of Rockford can develop it into a white water rafting course.

There was no word on when the course could open, but it's expected to be large enough to host regional and national white water rafting competitions.
