Fairgrounds & South Tributary #6 Creek Design and Construction (Thornton, CO) 2019-2020

 

OVERVIEW:  Addressing hydrologic alterations associated with urban development, and addressing riparian habitat degradation, this project included ecological assessments and restoration design for over a mile of plains stream habitat near Thornton, CO.  Working with JR Engineering and DR Horton, AloTerra provided ecological characterizations, as well as upland, wetland, and riparian restoration design.

Design elements also included native pollinator habitat, soil amendment and erosion control specifications, and raptor nesting specifications for the floodplain-urban interface.  AloTerra initiated stream construction, bioengineering, and floodplain restoration services in 2020.
