Regional Stream Stewardship & Recovery Handbook

Location: Northern Colorado

Client: DOLA, Lefthand Watershed Oversight Group (LWOG)

Status: Complete

Timeframe: November 2016-October 2017


The idea for this Handbook grew out of the recovery efforts after the 2013 Colorado flood and the resulting recovery projects. Everyone involved learned valuable lessons about how streams function during and after a record-breaking flood, as well as how landowners can be good stewards of the stream system. From these lessons, the idea of a Handbook meant specifically for private landowners living along streams was born. Jon served as the project manager and primary author of the Handbook while employed at a previous firm.


DOLA funded the project, with the Lefthand, Big Thompson, Little Thompson and Saint Vrain Watershed Coalitions making up the Handbook Steering Committee.
