Boulder County and the Lefthand Watershed Oversight Group, in collaboration with the James Creek Watershed Initiative and the Town of Jamestown, developed stream restoration designs for James and Little James creeks. Funding for the designs was provided by a Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Relief (CDBG-DR) planning grant through the Colorado Watershed Resilience Planning Grant Program to complete the stream restoration 30% design.
This work was completed as part of the James Canyon Flood Recovery Project.
Portions of the project area were identified for funding through the Natural Resource Conservation Services Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program. The EWP program provides financial assistance for implementation of approved creek restoration plans. Boulder County intends to be the Local Sponsor for the EWP projects in James Creek.
