Meetings Set for Denver Waterways Restoration Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the city and county of Denver, will hold three public meetings to gather input on the recently initiated Denver Waterways Restoration Study.

Main purpose of the study is to identify ecosystem restoration and flood risk reduction opportunities along critical areas of the South Platte River from 6th Avenue to 58th Avenue and flood-prone areas of Harvard Gulch and Weir Gulch.

The meetings will take place at the following locations:

April 29

South Platte River Public Meeting – Fairview Elementary School, 2715 W. 11th Ave.

May 6  

Harvard Gulch Public Meeting – Harvard Gulch Recreation Center, 550 E. Iliff Ave.

May 7  

Weir Gulch Public Meeting – Barnum Recreation Center, 360 W. Hooker St.

In 2000, Congress provided approval for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to study ecosystem and flood risk issues along the South Platte River in Arapahoe and Adams Counties. Congress added Denver County to the study authorization in 2008, and the reconnaissance study was completed by the Corps in 2010. The results of that study indicated federal interest in pursuing a comprehensive feasibility study with the city and county of Denver as the cost-share sponsor.
