Lagae Ranch, Castle Pines, CO

Project Owner: Infrastructure

Project description: Powell Restoration has partnered directly with Rick Engineering for the erosion control at Lagae Ranch. The project continues to be under construction and consists of the installation and maintenance of erosion control in preparation for the future residential development in Castle Pines, CO. Current work includes the first phases of erosion control and re-vegetation after the road improvements and construction of a roundabout at Lagae Road and Mira Vista Lane.  Lagae Rance is a 249-acre planned development to include Elk Ridge Park, American Academy Charter School, up to 231 single-family homes, 400  multi-family residences, an elementary school, 76 acres of open space, trails, civic uses, community uses, commercial uses and limited retail.

Lower Boulder Creek – Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Project

Owner(s): Boulder County
and partners at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

General Contractor:
American West

Location: Boulder County Parks and Open Space

Project description: In the mid to late 1990's The Parks and Open Space acquired a number of parcels along Lower Boulder Creek with the intent of protecting, preserving and restoring segments of the creek and surrounding landscape from past on-site mining, agricultural activities, and upstream development.  These past activities impacted the area including channel morphology and steep, eroding banks, disconnected floodplain, prevalence of non-native species growing in poor soils, and low quality riparian, in-stream and upland habitats.  Because of the impoverished stream environment and for the length of time the site has been degraded,  revegetation has been ineffective.   Powell Restoration as a subcontractor to American West actively participated in the ecological restoration of the area that would have otherwise taken decades, if ever, to improve.  Work detailed installation of coir blanket material along the creek banks, planting of native species to include grasses, shrubs and plugs, revegetation using appropriate seed mixtures, hydromulching and soil conditioning.

Proposed Objectives:

  • Restore historic floodplain to protect regionally scarce and declining riparian habitat by planting high quality riparian habitat and by increasing the diversity of native plant species and appropriate mix of native grasses and forbs.
  • Preserve, restore and create diverse, functional wetland communities and wildlife habitats to include habitat for migratory birds and a diversity of other native wildlife species.
  • Restore upland habitat and promote healthy stream corridor ecosystem to include riffle-pool sequences, gravel bars, large woody debris and streamside shading.

 

Colorado State Highway 9

Owner: Colorado Department
of Transportation

General Contractor:
Kirkland Construction

Location: Kremmling/ Colorado Highway 9

Project description: Powell Restoration partnered with CDOT and Kirkland Construction (General Contractor) for improvements and reconstruction of an 11-mile segment of Colorado State Highway 9 located between Kremmling and Silverthorn.  The project scope included widening the roadway to include 8-foot shoulders, improvement of horizontal and vertical alignments of highway to meet 65 mph design speed, as well as installation of five wildlife underpasses and two wildlife overpasses.  Powell Restoration was responsible for all scopes of the erosion control to include silt fence, erosion logs, blanketing of new slopes and the re-vegetation of the disturbed areas and newly constructed over and underpasses which included seeding and hydromulching.

Cherry Creek at Eco Park

Project Description: Powell Restoration partnered with general contractor ECI Site Construction Management to restore and stabilize a mile long section of Cherry Creek that needed to be rebuilt and stabilized. Stabilization efforts consisted of 5 different seed types for each zone of restoration. Over 4,000 linear feet of built willow logs installed at the toe of the river edge, along with over 20,000sy of Coir Mat with 18” Wedge Stakes.  A combination of grass plugs, 5 Gallon Shrubs and Trees were planted in and along the river.

Piney Creek at Parker Road

Project Description: Project consisted of grading and rerouting Piney Creek to its original flow. The wetland mitigation area consisted of Coir Mat, Willow Logs and several wetland plugs and wetland plant and tree species.

Longmont Dam Road

Project Description: The floods of 2013 devastated several large spots of Longmont Dam Road.  Once the road was rebuilt, Powell was brought in to reclaim the disturbed areas along the creek. The project consisted of hand broadcast seeding over 3AC along with project specified amendments.  Over 17,000sy of Coconut blanket was installed with 12” Eco Stakes.  Willow plantings, trees and shrubs were installed in areas of the revegetation plan.
