ERC designed and oversaw construction to modernize the main Burlington Canal headworks off of the South Platte River. The diversion structure included four main crest gates (two 6 foot gates and two 12 foot gates) a 4’ x 13’ crest gate for bypass flow operations and a 4’x4’ sandout gate all with flow measuring capabilities. ERC’s work included hydraulic modeling, gate design, 404 and floodplain permitting and construction observation. The completed facility has the ability to pass and measure flows up to approximately 1,000 cfs. Gates were designed to fit within the original Burlington diversion structure while improving operational flexibility and safety.
