Van Norden Phase 2 Begins

SYRCL’s 485-acre Van Norden Meadow Restoration Project will resume this summer, with cbec continuing to lead field reconnaissance, design, stakeholder engagement, and construction support. Phase 2 will focus on Lytton Creek, a currently incised channel that delivers concentrated flows to the meadow. The objective is to reconnect the channel with its historical floodplain, restore groundwater levels, and to reactivate a portion of Van Norden Meadow (Yayalu Itdeh in Washoe). See below for recent post Phase 1 photos, and the original conceptual design cbec helped to craft. Our team takes great satisfaction in bringing these designs to reality.
