370z high flow cats and a 2-year-old zebra striped male.
"I don't think the zebra stripes will hold up as well as the high flow cats," he sd.
A 2.2-kilowatt hydroelectric system, located near Hiawatha's dam on the Little Cedar River, will be used to create the flow on the river. The dam, which had been abandoned for more than 50 years, was restored by volunteers during the summer of 2016.
The system's three turbines, each rated at 10,500 kilowatts, will run at a constant speed while the river flows through the turbine. The water will be channeled into a circular, 2,000-foot-long pool at the center of the dam, about 1,000 feet downstream from where the old Hiawatha Power House used to be.
After the river flows through the pool, it will continue past the pool and the turbines before emptying into the Cedar River.
"It's a lot of work, but it's worth it to see the fish come back," Tetzlaff sd. "They're coming up and eating right off of the bottom."
He sd the project is also unique because it will not require any kind of power, including electricity, to operate the dam. He added that he doesn't believe anyone will be able to duplicate the project.
The pool will be used to keep the Cedar River's temperature the same as the rest of the river. The pool's location will keep fish away from the turbine, according to Tetzlaff.
Tetzlaff sd the project could also be beneficial to nearby farmers who will be able to access the pool for irrigation.
When the project was first proposed, Tetzlaff sd he had his doubts about the project. He was skeptical that it would be safe to dam the Cedar River because he didn't think it would take long for a fish to get lodged in one of the turbines.
But once he learned about how the turbines work, Tetzlaff sd he realized it was a viable option.
"I think it's a really good idea," he sd. "It's going to make a huge difference."
He added that people should have confidence in the project because the river is the only area on Earth where people have successfully restored an endangered species.
Tetzlaff has seen a variety of fish return to the river. Some of the larger fish are common carp, catfish and walleye.
"I haven't seen any steelhead yet, but I'm hoping they come back too," he sd.
He sd he has noticed a big increase in the number of people fishing in the river in the last couple of years. Tetzlaff sd he believes the return of the river will have a positive impact on the local fishing community.
"It's just nice to see the fish come back," he sd. "It's fun to see them come up in the spring and catch some. It's something you can't experience in the city."
Tetzlaff sd he has been able to spend time in the park every weekend for the last three or four weeks. He sd he loves fishing and spending time outdoors in his free time. He added that he would like to continue to spend time in the park if he gets the chance.
"It's a nice park," he sd. "I just hope we get to keep it."
The park is located at the end of Cedar Street. It can be accessed by driving along Cedar Street, or by walking along Cedar Street. It's open from 8:30 a.m. until sunset.
The park is also accessible by foot, by bicycle or by golf cart. To reach the park, follow Cedar Street west and park at the park's lot.
The park has two picnic shelters, two covered pavilions and four barbecue grills.

The park's future was discussed during a presentation at the district's July 9 meeting. A proposal for a new park at the river's edge in the city's southern
