STREAM BANK RESTORATION PROJECTS

The RRRC looks for areas along the Rifle River that are suffering from erosion and will help to restore the riverbank to reduce sediments in the river, which improve water quality in the river. We're currently looking for property owners along the river interested in partnering with us to do tree-revetment project(s) in the fall of 2018.

RIVER TEMPERATURE MONITORING

In conjunction with the Mershon Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the RRRC purchased seven data loggers that record river water temperature and added them to those already owned by the Mershon Chapter.  The data loggers, fourteen in all, were placed in the Rifle River and various feeder streams in June 2017 and retrieved in September.
