  • 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

Project Information


Boulder County developed stream restoration designs for Fourmile Canyon Creek. 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.

The project area was identified for funding through the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Emergency Watershed Projection (EWP) program. The 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 Fourmile Canyon Creek EWP project.
