South Park Riparian Reconnect Projects

FlyWater was hired as the constructor for the Riparian Reconnect Team (Gillilan Associates, Inc, EcoMetrics and Johnson Environmental) to build two projects on private ranches in South Park, Colorado. We worked along side designers in the field to install BMS (beaver mimicry structures), stabilize banks, improve fish habitat, increase channel length and habitat complexity and improve floodplain saturation and hydrologic connectivity. FlyWater used plans developed by the team along with a large amount of field fit engineering to meet the project goals. All materials for the projects were derived onsite with the majority of building materials being sod mats, willows and trees. This project was a great success with natural beaver propagation occurring days after BMS installation and a visual increase in the riparian hydrologic connectivity.
