Boulder County has completed the design for the restoration of Fourmile Canyon Creek and restoration work is underway. In addition, Boulder County has agreed to be the Local Sponsor for the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) project for Fourmile Canyon Creek, allowing implementation of the stream restoration project!

  • Restoring a stable and sustainable channel configuration within the existing watershed setting
  • Restoring natural riparian and in-stream habitat
  • Utilizing natural materials to reconstruct in-stream habitat features and stabilize channel banks
  • Minimizing disturbance to private property and amenities within the watershed
