WSW completed this design-build stream project for the City of Durango, Five Rivers Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Animas River Keepers in 2009.
This project included design, permitting, traffic control plan, storm water management, construction and vegetation.
We created stream access and boating and fishing improvements; mitigated stream bank erosion; enhanced riparian vegetation; and improved trails and habitat in collaboration with CDOW.
“Exemplary Project of the Year” award for all Colorado Trout Unlimited chapters, 2009
From soliciting and writing grants to educational outreach, budget development, construction management, post-construction monitoring, and landowner communication, WSW was successful in completing a project that deepened the natural beauty of its surrounding community.
Project also included funding by Great Outdoors Colorado Mid-Range Recreation Projects for park and trail work. WSW constructed two whitewater play wave features at this time.
The Town of Telluride asked WSW to create a drop structure on Bear Creek. We designed and re-built a failed grade control and created something natural, that visitors don’t realize was manmade. This is our goal within stream projects: for it to look like we were never there.
Received Town commendations for providing services in excess of original contract agreement to ensure project success.
In 2016, WSW designed and built a Sneffels Creek bank stabilization project through the Atlas Mill mine tailings.
