State health officials have inspected the ongoing road improvement project in Boulder Canyon in response to an activist’s complaint raising concerns about the adequacy of erosion control measures to protect Boulder Creek. Those officials said they found some “corrective action” items that need to be addressed “immediately.”

Complaints questioning the adequacy of erosion control employed by Longmont-based contractor Zak Dirt, had been forwarded earlier this month to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment concerning work led by the Colorado Department of Transportation on Boulder Canyon Drive, also known as Colo. 119, between Boulder and Nederland.

The complaint came in the wake of observations made by members of Boulder Waterkeeper, an advocacy group which has been vocal much of this year on issues pertaining to the overall health of Boulder Creek.
