North & South Douglas Creek Projects
Current Status: Aztec General Contractors, LLC; CMS, Inc.; and DRX Enterprises, LLC are working on completing the work that City Engineering advertised in the Fall of 2013. Project 1 is substantially complete. Project 4 will be substantially complete by the end of March 2014. Projects 2 and 3 are currently sheduled to be substantially complete in mid May of 2014.
Background: The Waldo Canyon Wildfire of 2012 dramatically changed the characteristics of the drainage basins that feed North and South Douglas Creeks. These two creeks have experienced greater amounts of sediment and debris loads during hydrologic events since the wildfire in addition to greater flow rates of storm runoff. These factors make the already aging and deteriorating channels even more susceptible to damage.
City Council appropriated funding to begin work on these channels May 14th2013. Since that time, City Engineering hired two consultants to review all available documents associated with these two channels and performed an extensive inspection of the over 6 miles of concrete lined channel.
