Reach fact sheets
During the planning process, a site analysis and inventory was conducted to understand and document the extents of the project. In order to do this, the Big Thompson River was looked at in smaller sections called "reaches" to understand the character of the river at a more appropriate scale. This method of planning provides a holistic and comprehensive understanding of what the Big Thompson River has to offer so we can effectively plan for the future of the river.
