Poudre River Bank Stabilization

Western States Reclamation (WSR) was contracted by the City of Greeley to stabilize a section of the Poudre River as part of the City’s ongoing flood recovery efforts.  The river had eroded a section of the bank undermining an existing section of the Poudre River Pedestrian Trail System.   The project used bioengineering design practices as over 1,300 CY of soil was excavated in order to place the trunks and root wads of 55 coniferous trees for bank stabilization while also laying back the slopes of the riverbank.  WSR offered turn-key services by installing initial BMPs and performing all dirtwork, placement of woody material, 255 CY of riprap placement,  placement of 462 CY of new concrete trail for pedestrian use, and final restoration efforts including riparian plantings, seeding, and installation of erosion control blanket.
