Riverbend Engineering has been consulting on river systems in Colorado and New Mexico since 1999. We specialize in Natural Channel Design (NCD). This practical approach to river engineering begins with a fundamental understanding of the behavior of rivers, how they will evolve over time, and how they will respond to alterations. NCD practitioners use this knowledge of river system behavior to achieve the client’s project goals without having to armor all of the banks and bed of the river. Riverbend Engineering has built a successful practice helping our clients achieve their project goals with cost effective, natural looking, and long lasting design solutions.
