Matrix is providing engineering services to the City of Pueblo for two demonstration projects utilizing innovative approaches to improving water quality in and along Fountain Creek.

The studies are designed to benefit water quality improvement systems with a bed load sediment collector system to selectively remove problem sediments and evaluate changes in stream morphology and channel reestablishment. The project will include a 25-acre off-channel detention basin to provide wetlands habitat and evaluate flood attenuation and pollutant reduction. The goals are to increase flood storage and slow the flood wave while also improving water quality through bio-chemical and physical processes. 

Services included:

  • Watershed Planning
  • River Restoration and Channel Design
  • Channel Stability Analysis
  • Flood Hazard Mitigation
  • Public Involvement
  • Grant Writing
