Stream Services

UDFCD typically constructs mitigation projects through an approach referred to as Project Partners . This is an alternative project delivery option utilized by the Stream Services program that engages owners, consultants, and contractors at the onset of a project to work collaboratively to deliver goal based projects. For information on working with UDFCD on projects see the Working with Us page.


UDFCD projects fall into two categories – capital improvement projects and stream management projects.

Capital Improvement Projects

Capital improvement projects implement master-planned improvements and are carried out through the Five Year CIP. Each year the UDFCD Board adopts a Five Year CIP which lists projects and UDFCD participation for the next five years. Each year a Request Letter is sent to local government representatives to prioritize projects and is the basis for the Five Year CIP.

Stream Management Projects

Stream management projects (sometimes referred to as maintenance projects) include restoration work on past capital projects or approved projects from the Maintenance Eligibility Program . The Stream Management Plan is developed on a yearly basis and identifies maintenance projects by county for work to be performed that year. Each year a Stream Services Request Letter is sent to local government representatives to prioritize projects and is the basis for the Stream Management Plan.

Design reports, project as-builts, and maintenance eligible stream and river reaches can be found on the Interactive Map.
