Well, before I had visited this Weir, I did not know what it was or what it did. My daughter showed me a spot in Hayesville, NC that I never knew existed, until now. And, I found it fascinating and wanted to share it with all of you!
A Weir is placed in a river to provide turbulence to the water for the wildlife, flaura, fauna, and fish. This churning water adds in oxygen to the water system and helps the river to keep things a healthy environment for those that live and need the water to survive.
A word of caution, it is not safe to swim or boat near a Weir due to the whirlpools and downpull in the water near the weir. You could be trapped beneath the water very easily!! And, it is deep near the Weir.
If you get to Hayesville and happen to visit the Dam, be sure to also visit the Weir. The Weir is located very close in proximity to the Dam and is a short walk from the parking lot to the Weir either up, to the side, or beneath it.
Enjoy your surroundings and try to visit all that you can!
