The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) funded a restoration project on the Rio San Antonio located in the Valles Caldera National Preserve. The organization Los Amigos de Valles Caldera worked with several river restorationists to complete the Rio San Antonio project. Keystone Restoration Ecology was contracted to monitor effectiveness of the techniques employed along the river. In 2013 after project reports were submitted and reveiwed, the US EPA drafted a letter of commendation congratulating the NMED on the exceptional work completed by Los Amigos de Valles Caldera and their contractors.

    "The accompanying monitoring report was detailed and very well done. The time series photo points and the statistical trend analysis allowed for a good evaluation of project effectiveness. The monitoring report also goes in great detail about the various stream bank treatments and management measures (Zuni bowl, plug and pond, etc) that were employed in this project as well as the rationale for choosing them and how they functioned in the field. Overall this is an excellent report." ~ US Environmental Protection Agency

KRE continues to partner with Los Amigos de Valles Caldera to assess, design, build, and monitor restoration projects in the Valles Caldera. For more information on restoration techniques used please go to our Stream and Wetland Restoration pages or Contact us.
