La Cienega de San Vicente Restoration Project has been ongoing with the New Mexico Environment Department for several years. Last summer, Stream Dynamics Inc. was hired by NMED to protect the Town of Silver City's sewer line across the creek channel with a constructed A-arm Crossvane.
Stream Dynamics Inc. visited our San Vicente Creek Crossvane today, to assess its success after a series of heavy monsoon rains… We are happy to say that it looks great after a tornado, and three great rain storms, including an event that topped bank full (1.15 in in 2 hours)! There are many native plants, wildflowers, and trees thriving in the constructed water harvesting basins, and along the floodplain. It looks so good, you can hardly tell we did anything at all!
