Phase 5

Streambank Stabilization and Riparian Restoration Program

Current Status

This project is only just getting started, with funds still being acquired. A few project sites have been identified for the first round of designs and construction. If you are interested in having streambank restored on your property as part of future rounds, please contact Emma Reesor.

The Problem

In Alamosa County, the Rio Grande is suffering from heavily eroding banks, degraded riparian areas, sedimentation, and a shallow channel. Phase 5 of the Streambank Stabilization and Riparian Restoration Program will address these issues on several bends upstream of Alamosa through bank stabilization, channel shaping, and revegetation.
