Planning for Resilience

Conceptual River Planning

Project Description

Funding from the Community Development Block Grant- Disaster Recovery program administered by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs provided in 2016-2017 allowed the Big Thompson Watershed Coalition to create more detailed conceptual design plans for the following areas:

  1.  Cedar Cove
  2.  Jasper Lake
  3.  Areas west of Loveland from the Riverview RV Park through Morey Open Space
  4.  Areas in the Big Thompson Canyon including the Oxbows reach near Sleepy Hollow Park, the Midway area downstream of Drake and the Rossum to Wilson reach in the City of Loveland.

Based on the more detailed plans and assessments, key areas for restoration were identified and BTWC was able to obtain grant funds for several of these areas for river implementation projects.
