Boulder Creek Relocation Project (Boulder, CO) 2017

 

OVERVIEW: This rural reach of Boulder Creek had been impacted by a long history of dumping, agricultural use, irrigation diversion activities, and the 2013 floods.  This project included complete stream realignment and floodplain restoration, and reconstruction of a ditch diversion structure to allow for fish passage.  AloTerra provide labor and technical oversight to construct vegetated soil lifts, completed bank and floodplain seeding and mulching, and installed over 15,000 shrub containers, willow cuttings, and cottonwood poles.  AloTerra provided significant field fitting and value engineering to complete this project successfully for North State Environmental and the City of Boulder.
