Abstract: A sediment impact assessment was conducted for Fountain Creek in Manitou Springs, CO, as part of a reconnaissance level planning study. The purpose of the study was to identify the magnitude of sediment problems that might be associated with proposed flood-control projects, and to recommend appropriate sediment studies for the next level of planning study. The study employs the sediment budget approach to assess channel stability in the study reach. The potential for debris flows from tributary streams was evaluated. Total sediment yield estimates were made for preliminary sizing of debris basins and/or reservoirs. Recommendations for more detailed sediment studies were made.
