CGA was hired to assist the Clear Creek Watershed Coalition with implementing best practices for water quality and quantity in Johnson and Iowa counties. Our team examined potential sites and 35 were eventually chosen for improvements. Bank widening, pond, and berm installation, and other flood mitigation strategies were implemented at the selected locations.

There were seven bid packages with multiple ponds, wetlands, and landowners involved.

The Clear Creek Watershed Project includes activities in the upper watershed to reduce flooding and improve water quality, as well as infrastructure projects in the city of Coralville.
