Basalt River Restoration - Roaring Fork and Fryingpan Rivers
Matrix Design Group, Inc. worked with the Town of Basalt on the restoration of two miles of the Roaring Fork River. The segment of the river through Basalt is unstable due to encroachment by development and roadway construction. River restoration work is focused on returning the “Gold Medal” waters to a scenic and natural river through the heart of the town. Initial planning work won the National Local Excellence award in 2000 in ASFPM competition.
