Channel Reconstruction Below Lower Weber River Diversion

I shot this timelapse of final pool and river channel reconstruction during November 2013.  This was a Weber County Emergency Watershed Protection project designed to stabilize the irrigation diversion after the floods of 2011.  With TU engagement we were able to ensure that the ecological value of the fish ladder, recreational value of the scour pool and the irrigation diversion structure were all preserved.  The excavator operator did a great job rebuilding the channel. Fish were already moving back in a couple of days later.
