Fourmile Canyon Creek Restoration

18 Sep 2016 Posted by Tyler

ICON Engineering staff engineer Tyler Rosburg recently presented at the 27th annual Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers (CASFM) Conference in Crested Butte, Colorado. Tyler presented on an ICON Engineering project currently underway on Fourmile Canyon Creek in Boulder, Colorado.

During the 2013 floods, thousands of cubic yards of sediment were deposited on the creek’s floodplain. This increased the risk of flooding for nearby homes and also put city infrastructure at risk. The project, sponsored by the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD), and the City of Boulder, aims to restore 1,500 feet of the creek to a safer and more resilient condition.

In his presentation, Tyler shared ICON’s sediment transport and flood risk analyses as well as the 30% design. We look forward to seeing this project progress further in the future, and ultimately benefit the people and City of Boulder.
