LWOG assesses restoration needs in the watershed, identifies potential funding sources, obtains and manages grants, prepares RFPs, contracts with engineering firms and contractors, oversees planning and implementation projects, and monitors the effectiveness of restoration projects.
These projects benefit Lefthand Creek residents, stakeholders and visitors.
Currently, LWOG has completed implementation of 11 flood recovery restoration projects in the plains and foothills and is starting new projects in the canyons as part of this program.
