Subject: Joint Project Proposal Cherry Creek Corridor Restoration Project Request and Recommendation Arapahoe County Open Spaces staff requests that the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) approve the expenditure of up to 2,000,000 in Open Spaces Acquisition and Development funding for the proposed Cherry Creek Corridor Restoration project. Staff also recommends that the BoCC approve the acceptance of two parcels of land that will be donated to Arapahoe County from Denver Water and the City and County of Denver.

This item was heard and approved by the BOCC at a study session on May 29, 2018.
Tagged Passions:Utility, utility, property, development, corridor, funding, water, and Development

Background The Cherry Creek Restoration Project has been initiated to restore a one-mile reach of the Cherry Creek Corridor, located approximately 2.5 miles downstream of Cherry Creek Reservoir between Quebec Street and Iliff Avenue. The project spans between the City and County of Denver on the downstream side and Arapahoe County on the upstream side. Within the project reach, the Cherry Creek channel consists of a 30-foot wide active sand bed channel with a perennial base flow. The channel invert drops 30 feet and runs at approximately a 0.6 slope.

Currently, the active channel is experiencing severe down-cutting, leaving a 10 to 20-foot deep eroded/incised channel with vertical banks. The stream channel improvements proposed in this project will raise the channel bed and associated water table. An extensive planting effort is included with the project to encourage the return of native vegetation and wildlife habitat. A proposed realignment of the Cherry Creek Regional Trail, as well as the addition of new secondary trails and rest stops, will create a better user experience.

Cherry Creek also contains the Denver metro area s most heavily used regional trail that connects Douglas, Arapahoe, and Denver Counties along Cherry Creek up to the South Platte River. As such, the degradation imposes a significant safety and passage barrier for trail users. The degradation has resulted in the following impairments to the stream corridor:

Tagged Passions:Public Transit, parks, corridor, trails, and watershed

lack of floodplain connection lowering groundwater table loss of riparian habitat diminishing wetlands diminishing aquatic and terrestrial habitat diminishing water quality with bank erosion eroding banks potential loss of utilities and storm outfalls potential loss of residential lots, roads, and trails unsafe open space and park for users

Tagged Passions:Utility, utility, parks, streets, trails, and water

Purpose of the Project The purpose of the Cherry Creek Restoration Project is to improve aquatic, wetland, and riparian habitat; restore ecological function; maintain flood conveyance and grade control; and improve the recreational experience. The identified objectives of the project are:

Tagged Passions:flooding and recreation

restore ecological process connect the stream and its floodplain protect people, property, and the environment from flood hazard protect the watershed provide for local pedestrian connectivity from the adjacent community to the stream corridor provide for regional pedestrian mobility between the City and County of Denver, Arapahoe

County, and Douglas County enhance instream water quality and water quality for existing tributary areas enhance water quality for proposed roadway project at Iliff restore the stream ecology create an open space for passive recreation Floodplain benches will be created adjacent to the active channel to expand the riparian corridor and improve flood capacity. Other improvements will include approximately 10,000 feet of bank protection, 150,000 cubic yards of grading, planting of trees, shrubs, willow stakes, wetland plugs, and 30 acres of native seeding. With healthier stands of vegetation resulting from the raised water table, the project will provide a much stronger flood corridor with improved conveyance that will increase safety for the surrounding public and infrastructure, while keeping 100-year flood flows within the open space corridor. The stabilized channel will also improve water quality by reducing the heavy sediment loads being transported by the existing channel. Early Cherry Creek watershed plans recognized stream stabilization and reclamation as a watershed-wide method to control sediment, phosphorus, and other nutrients being transported to downstream waters. Rich riparian ecosystem vegetation will be achieved. BoCC Consent Agenda, June 19, 2018 Agenda Item Page 3 of 6 Technical Feasibility of the Project Riffle structures will be constructed with only one-foot drop heights and only 2.5 downstream drop faces. In addition, the riffles will be constructed with loose rock (void-filled riprap) to simulate natural river bed material, all of which is very conducive to fish passage. Similarly, sculpted concrete grade control structures will be designed with a series of step/pool sequences to allow for fish passage and provide a home for aquatic organisms. The upper banks of the creek are currently dominated by non-native and invasive species including: Smooth brome, Cheatgrass, Canada thistle, Marestail, Russian olive, and Siberian Elm. Due to the project reach s eroded condition, little to no riparian or wetland vegetation is present along the creek banks. The project includes creating more floodplain benches to provide riparian habitat and re- stabilize the banks with native riparian and upland seed. The areas with 10 to 20-foot eroded banks will be regraded and restored as native uplands. Creating wetland/riparian benches and burying exposed concrete will enhance the wildlife habitat along this reach of the creek. Mile High Youth Corps will be utilized to install trees, shrubs, willow stakes, and grass plugs to help supplement the planting contractor s overall effort. The Cherry Creek Regional Trail runs along the south bank of the creek through the project reach. This trail is a heavily used pedestrian and cycling trail within an urban corridor. Due to the steep banks and active erosion, the trail has been undermined in areas and recently repaired. Many other areas of the trail could experience failure if the creek channel is not stabilized and restored. Several recreational components will be improved throughout the project area. By re-grading the banks to a gentler slope, the regional trail will be reconstructed to the updated Denver Parks standard with a 12-ft concrete trail with 4-ft recovery zones on each side. Access points to the creek will concentrate access without compromising the success of the surrounding wetland and riparian areas. Land Ownership All of the land that the project will occur on is either owned by the City and County of Denver or Denver Water. Denver Water and the City and County of Denver each own a parcel of land in Arapahoe County, and both entities have agreed to transfer their respective properties to Arapahoe County Open Spaces to further this project. Arapahoe County s ownership will allow the County to better manage the Cherry Creek Trail and stormwater/permanent water quality from the Iliff widening project. Arapahoe County will gain approximately 10 additional acres of open space. Some buried asbestos exists on the properties that will be transferred to Arapahoe County, but it will be removed or properly buried pursuant to a Materials Management Plan as part of the overall project. Project Budget Note: Reaches 5A 5B are in the City and County of Denver. Reach 5C is the Arapahoe County portion of the project. All SEMSWA ( 700K) and proposed Arapahoe County Open Spaces funds ( 2M) will go towards Reach 5C.

Plant vegetation and provide temporary watering until established. Remove temporary construction erosion-control BMPs once vegetation is established.

Monitoring Plan The UDFCD will be responsible for monitoring the project. The UDFCD is financially supported by a property tax mill levy specifically collected for Denver and Arapahoe County. UDFCD annually inspects and performs river management services five times a year that consist of a crew walking the reach to provide vegetation management, removing debris and trash, and identifying any potential problem areas. In addition to the above maintenance, the Section 404 permit for the Cherry Creek Restoration

Restoration Project. The Cherry Creek Stewardship Partners and CDOT are also collaborating on the

project and have been involved in developing the project concepts. See Appendix F for support letters.
