The existing grouted stone channel in Creede, Colorado, is approaching the end of its useful life. The channel is subjected to repeated freeze-thaw cycles causing spalling of the grout and rock. The city is unable to maintain the channel and asked the Corps of Engineers to evaluate channel rehabilitation plans. A solution has been developed and proposed to line the existing channel with reinforced concrete. The Albuquerque District of the Corps of Engineers is preparing to initiate the final study phase for the proposed solution and will then design, supervise and administer project construction.
