Sediment Management Project Underway
Construction of a sediment management project in the Stillwater Bay Sediment Basin began the week of Dec. 6. As part of the East Troublesome Fire recovery efforts, this EWP project is located on Stillwater Creek and is within the high-water line of Lake Granby. The structure wll assist in managing increased post-fire debris and sediment that is mobilized within the Stillwater Creek basin. It will also allow for sediment and debris to be captured and concentrated at a location that has accessibility for removal and maintenance. Once installed, sediment and debris removal will be conducted on an as needed basis for the next 3 to 5 years. As the watershed recovers and sediment loads returns to pre-fire levels, the structure will be removed and the channel and Lake Granby reservoir basin will be restored.
