Infrastructure Solutions
Construction of a new diversion dam on the San Miguel that allows for fish passage.

Colorado’s water-short stream reaches can also benefit from Infrastructure Solutions projects to restore flows. Some examples include:

  • Headgate and delivery system upgrades that make diversions more efficient.
  • Moving a point of diversion downstream or changing the source of water (e.g. from surface diversion to a well).
  • Installing low flow channels around existing structures
  • Removing abandoned dams

Infrastructure Solutions projects are often a component of a Water Rights Solutions project, but sometimes we engage in a solely Infrastructure Solution project. For example, in 2013, we removed an abandoned dam that restored flows to the Cache la Poudre River in Fort Collins. Learn more >>
