19 flood restoration projects receive $2.29 million in grants

Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced $2.29 million in grants for 19 new stream recovery projects in Boulder, Larimer, Weld and Jefferson counties.

The grants, approved by the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) July 16, will reimburse up to 50 percent of eligible expenses used for cleaning up debris or restoring watersheds.
“Quickly and strategically rehabilitating streams damaged by the flood is critical for many reasons; most notably so that we are prepared to endure any future surprises Mother Nature might throw our way,” Hickenlooper said in a statement.

“We are grateful to the Colorado Water Conservation Board; to senators Jeanne Nicholson and Scott Renfroe and representatives Mike Foote and Jerry Sonnenberg, for working with us to expeditiously get these resources where they are so needed,” he said.
