From 2003 to 2012, River Design Group played an instrumental role in the planning, design and implementation phases for the multi-year restoration effort of the Clark Fork River following the removal of Milltown Dam. The project included nearly 3 miles of channel restoration and approximately 200 acres of floodplain restoration. Designs addressed channel morphology, floodplain function and aquatic habitat within the context of site constraints. Activation of the new river and floodplain occurred in 2010, with final restoration and project implementation completed in 2012.
