HGD has teamed with Webco Inc. on a design/ build project for 3300 LF of stream restoration on Henson Creek and the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River in the Town of Lake City, CO.  This project utilizes in-stream structures, channel grading and vegetation transplants to improve fish habitat, sediment transport and recreational kayaking opportunities along Henson Creek and the Lake Fork of the Gunnison in town.  HEC-RAS FEMA flood analysis, sediment transport analysis and habitat design components were instrumental in getting public support and approval for this project.  This project is a part of a larger effort to improve conditions on several miles of stream in the adjacent reaches.
