Stream Rehabilitation Program

Areas along Fossil Creek are rapidly eroding.

The goals of the stream rehabilitation program vary depending on the project. Rehabilitation describes projects designed to repair areas of streams where the ecology, safety structure and water quality have changed over time. These sections have been impacted by human use and growth and cannot be completely restored to a state prior to human involvement. The Stormwater Master Plan identifies areas along the creeks in Fort Collins where rehabilitation projects are needed. Check out the proposed improvement maps.

Stream Rehabilitation Program goals:

  • Address poor aquatic habitat and unstable streams throughout Fort Collins while preserving natural and beneficial functions of floodplains
  • Increase emphasis on stormwater quality and protection of the City's urban watersheds
  • Incorporate the triple bottom line- environmental, social and economic benefits to the project and overall drainage basin
