South Boulder Creek

Description of Project: This project included generating an overall stream function uplift that was based on a measurable performance standard. This also included optimizing instream habitat while considering the limited flow regime of the project reach; stabilization of banks and the channel bedding, protecting existing diversion structures. During this project we also improved the natural riparian habitat (near stream disturbed areas) included establishment of appropriate soil horizons, vegetation communities, and basic riparian functions such as restoration of off-stream wetland that was impacted by the flood.
