I am goin down tomorrow night. I havge done this hike several times and it is one of my personal favorites. We usually hit the trailhead at around 11pm and make a night hike out of it. Camping at the bottom and waking up to do some swimming in the morning before hiking out. As far as the reconstruction of the area, I spoke with a ranger last week and got up to the minute info. They are not going to remove the dam anytime soon. The date of change is May 16 this year. What is going to happen is they are going to open the gate that diverts the water to the flume so that it will flow into the large swimming hole below the dam. If you are below the dam, looking at it, the gate is to the left of the dam where the 30' jump is. The ranger i spoke to said that theree should still be some really good swimming holes along the base of the dam.

For those who have not been down to this area, I would STRONGLY suggest going before the changes occur. It is really one of the best swimming holes in AZ.
