As part of the South Platte River Needs Assessment, the City and County of Denver desired to gain a better understanding of channel morphology and sediment transport throughout the project reach within Denver County. One purpose of this task was to develop a tool that identifies existing locations where degradation and aggradation are expected. Given this tool, the City and County can evaluate projected impacts to sediment continuity from proposed future modifications to the South Platte River and its corridor. A quasi steady-state HEC-RAS model was developed for this purpose. It is anticipated that the model will be used to evaluate impacts of potential projects such as removal of grade control structures, bridge construction, and planned restoration efforts to better understand stream responses to the larger river system.
