The Middle South Platte River Alliance is a diverse group of stakeholders brought together following the 2013 floods to envision a healthier and more flood resilient corridor in north central Colorado. The Alliance specifically addresses a 20+ mile stretch of the South Platte River in Weld County between the confluence of the St. Vrain and Cache la Poudre Rivers.

MSPRA has received disaster recovery grant funds to begin an 80% design on the Lower Latham Ditch. This project intends to maximize sediment flow, fish passage, and recreational safety while preserving its function as a diversion structure. This project is moving forward in partnership with the City of Evans, Anderson Consulting Engineers out of Fort Collins, CO, and the Latham Ditch Board of Directors.
The Middle South Platte River Alliance is officially registered in the State of Colorado as a Non-Profit entity!
We are excited to continue our journey as an organization.
