A cooperative effort is in effect to redesign and build new divergence structures that were lost or damaged in the 2013 Flood. The new fish passage structures are an owner responsibility, but Colorado Parks and Wildlife is making a great effort to help these flood victims rebuild with fish passage in mind. Learn more about these structures as well as the federal, state, and local efforts being made to help our watershed.

The Colorado Department of Natural Resources and the Colorado Water Conservation Board are hosting a meeting for all interested parties to discuss strategies for rebuilding water diversion structures following the September floods.
The meeting will focus on how to rebuild flood-damaged water diversion structures in a more fish and recreation-friendly manner. Discussion topics will include what resources are available to assist water users and identifying incentives for moving forward with fish and recreation-friendly designs as ditch companies and utilities move to replace infrastructure damaged or destroyed in the flooding.
Representatives from Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Colorado Water Conservation Board will be making presentations.
