Dec 19, 2012 - StaffCity of Riverton employee Dale Barrett used a front loader Wednesday to reinforce the bank of the Wind River on the Riverwalk property in south Riverton. City officials said most of the work is funded by M & M Construction, the company that excavated the property in the past and is required to pay for reclamation there. In addition to reinforcing the river bank, workers plan to rip out a trench for a drip line that someday will provide irrigation for trees at the Riverwalk. The city also wants to fill in areas that were washed away in recent floods, and employees will steepen the edge of an inland pond to create an advanced wetland wildlife habitat. Finally, gravel paths will be stabilized in preparation for the installation of a pedestrian walkway in the future.
