About the Middle South Platte River Alliance:

In response to the September 2013 flooding of the South Platte River in northern Colorado, a group of individuals and organizations came together to speak for the restoration of the river system and determine ways to make the South Platte more resilient in the face of future flooding events. With the goals of protecting property, preserving natural habitat, restoring portions of the floodplain, and rehabilitating infrastructure along the river, the Alliance guided the drafting of a Master Restoration Plan for the South Platte River between the confluence of the St.Vrain Creek and the Cache La Poudre River. Now complete, the Alliance will be working to implement this important plan. The Alliance strives to promote and implement projects that restore the river’s natural systems and help protect property from future flood events. These projects may include flood debris clean-up, river bank restoration, land conservation, removal of sediment from bridges and diversion structures and other projects deemed necessary to support a healthy and resilient river system.
