If the City of Beloit hasn't designated this sandbar as a Fluvial Geomorphology Outdoor Classroom, then who the hell's in charge of that miserable city anyhow.

Gravel are the babyteeth of a river's living selfhood.

For a river to deposit buildups locally along its course -- vs hoarding up all its stuff and uselessly offering everything to the vast obliviousness of the Ocean Sea -- is not a gift that any fool should take for granted. A Beloiter especially!

In downtown Beloit, Wisconsin, on September 1st, 2011, the Rock River as viewed upstream from a bridge on 4th Street (Wisconsin Route 213).

This section of the Rock River was formerly covered by an elevated parking deck, the structural supports of which might possibly have influenced the emergence and location of sandbars in the river. It is impossible to know!!
