Casper City Council Approves Platte River Revival Design Funds

North Platte River Whitewater

Casper City Council has unanimously approved $450,000 toward design and construction efforts at multiple Platte River Revival sites.

Colorado-based Stantec consulting will be tasked with providing geomorphic, environmental and cultural surveys for the Morad Park, Wyoming Boulevard, Water Treatment Plant, Izaak Walton and Knife River stream restoration priority sites.

The firm says it will aim to design plans for the five areas that improve the density of native vegetation, fish habitat and river bank stability.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer says several areas of the North Platte near the city are in need of stabilization.

“Through the two high-water years – not the year we experienced last year, but the two previous years – the river has altered its banks considerably, and we have a lot of disintegration occurring on the banks opposite of the ones that have been shored up,” Meyer said. “It’s a very necessary project.”

Under the agreement, Stantec will also provide construction administration services at the two other sites, one of which is near First Street.

The work will be funded through specifically-budgeted one-time funds.
