The Getz family property in Summit County includes approximately 1,300 feet of the Blue River, inclusive of a 500 foot high water side channel. They desired to enhance the aquatic habitat to create a better fishery during high and low flow conditions. ERC developed a design plan that controlled flows between the main and side channels and optimized aquatic habitat in each. Plans included buried cross channel cobble bars to split flows between the channels, riffles constructed of salvaged instream cobble and deeper pools designed to hold more larger fish throughout the year.
