CPRW North Forty News Column
Every month CPRW has a featured column in the North Forty News about a variety of topics important to the watershed.
Colorado Stream Flow Data
US Geological Survey (USGS)
The USGS investigates the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and underground waters and disseminates the data to the public, State and local governments, public and private utilities, and other Federal agencies involved with managing our water resources.
Resilient Crossings Handbook
CPRW, Four Mile, Coal Creek and Saint Vrain Watershed Coalitions
The Resilient Crossings Landowner Handbook is designed to inform private landowners about resilient crossing considerations and construction techniques in the context of living along a Front Range river. The concepts presented here can be broadly applied to sites in the canyons, foothills and plains and beyond. It provides information to begin the design process, material to facilitate your conversation with supporting engineers and permitting agencies, and resources to help you move more confidently towards making informed decisions for your crossing project.
Lower Poudre Master PLan
The historical flood events have called for an increase in resiliency of the Lower Poudre watershed. This is done using an integrated multi-objective Master Plan to assess river dynamics and Sediment Transport Model in order to propose realistic restoration options around the river corridor.
Learn from the Burn: The High Park Fire 5 years later
CPRW, USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station
It has been 5 years since the High Park Fire burned over 85,000 acres in Northern Colorado, causing extensive property damage, loss of life, and severe impacts to the water quality of the Poudre River. In the fall of 2016, a conference was organized by the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station and the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed to discuss what has been learned about our response to the fire.
Regional Stream Stewardship & Recovery Handbook
Lefthand Watershed Oversight Group, Big Thompson Watershed Coalition, Saint Vrain Watershed Coalition and Little Thompson Watershed Coalition
The purpose of the Stream Stewardship and Recovery Handbook is to create an educational resource for private landowners to better understand their streamside properties in the context of the larger watershed, what they can do to practice good stream stewardship and when/how they should engage outside help for stewardship or recovery projects.
