South Platte River Spillway & Gate - Latham Ditch
The South Platte River in Evans, Colorado is the site of a recent river project.
CTL | Thompson’s geotechnical department has long had a great working relationship with Anderson Consulting Engineers of Fort Collins. In recent years, our structural team has supported some of the projects that Anderson designed. For the project in the South Platte River, the geotechnical and structural groups both assisted with the design of channel improvements intended to better direct water to downstream water rights holders.
The project included several hundred feet of cutoff wall, constructed of steel sheet pile with a cast in place concrete cap. Other aspects of the project include various water control gates – radial gates and Obermeyer gates, as well as a fish ladder.
