Meetings Set for Denver Urban Waterways Feasibility Study
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the City and County of Denver, CO will hold three public meetings to gather input on the Denver Urban Waterways Feasibility Study.
The 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.
“During the open house period, the Corps and the City of Denver will answer questions the public may have about the study and gather their input on opportunities to address flood risk, improve the ecosystem and incorporate new recreation features where possible on the South Platte River, Weir Gulch and Harvard Gulch,” said Tiffany Vanosdall, project manager with the Corps of Engineers.
The meetings will take place at the following locations:
January 13, 2016
