Left Hand Watershed Center History
Lefthand Watershed Oversight Group was originally formed by residents and stakeholders as a watershed protection group in response to necessary mine clean-up activities in the watershed. One of the first activities of the group was to develop a watershed plan to direct future efforts at cleaning up mine wastes. Early efforts included implementing many of the mine related clean-up activities and monitoring water quality throughout the watershed to ensure a healthy watershed.
The 2013 flood created a new set of watershed management issues in Front Range watersheds. During the first 6 months following the flood, victims were relocated, roads received temporary repairs, debris-clogged channels were enlarged to accommodate spring runoff, destroyed headgates were replaced, and some emergency stabilization of channels was done.
