Envirocon’s Experience Leads to Another Clark Fork River Restoration Project

Leveraging experience from several successful projects on the Clark Fork River upstream of the Milltown Reservoir Superfund site between 2009 and 2012, Envirocon was able to capture another opportunity to complete important restoration work at the Clark Fork River Delta near Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho.

This project takes place where the Clark Fork River meets the lake and involves constructing access roads out into the delta and regrading over 500,000 cubic yards of material to rebuild and restore islands and shorelines damaged and eroded by wave action from the lake. The erosion worsened over time by fluctuations in the lake level due to hydropower production. Additional scope items include extensive bank and slope protection along with habitat restoration and enhancement to protect and preserve the area for wildlife and recreational use in the future.

Envirocon provided similar bank protection and river restoration services while working with the State of Montana on several reaches of the Clark Fork River outside of Missoula, Montana. Our record of successful performance and depth of personnel experience on these and other similar projects helped secure the award, with our technical approach to the work being the primary basis for our selection.

Management personnel from Envirocon’s Missoula, MT headquarters will provide oversight and technical direction, while the utilization of local labor and equipment resources will play an important role in the successful completion of the project. We look forward to working with Ducks Unlimited and Idaho Fish and Game to complete the first phase of this significant restoration project.
