BTWC Big Thompson River Restoration

Description of Project: The project will address multiple objectives including increased long-term flood resilience within the reach, improved resilience in upstream and downstream reaches due to the improved function within the project reach, and restoration of aquatic and riparian habitat. Flood resilience will be attained through a reliance on soft-path, rather than hard-path, approaches, consistent with aesthetics and ecological function. The project will restore the channel in this reach to improve conveyance capacity, a deeper low flow channel, and channel and bank stability.
