American Whitewater needs your help to define streamflows that support the full range of recreational opportunities on Saint Vrain and Lefthand Creeks in Colorado.
Information collected by this study will be used to assess river-dependent recreation as part of a joint stream management planning effort between American Whitewater, the Saint Vrain and Lefthand Water Conservation District, and other project partners. We have developed this survey so individuals and outfitters can report how changes in stream flows affect recreation quality on each of our targeted river segments. Your input will help American Whitewater identify the full range of flows necessary to support recreation experiences, from technical low water to challenging high water experiences, and opportunities to improve recreation in the watershed. The information you provide will protect and enhance economies that rely on environmental and recreational water uses, and support development of multipurpose projects as the Basin.
The rivers targeted by this study include:
1) North Saint Vrain Creek
2) South Saint Vrain Creek
3) Lefthand Creek
4) Saint Vrain Creek in Lyons
5) Saint Vrain Creek from Longmont to South Platte
You will be asked to participate in the survey only for segments along each river that you have experience with.
Please encourage your fellow paddlers to participate in this study.
