Weir maintenance begins at the Wash

Crews work to remove overgrown trees at the Las Vegas Wash.

Crews from Las Vegas Paving have recently begun maintenance at the Las Vegas Wash on the Bostick and Calico Ridge weirs.

Work includes removing vegetation from the two structures so that the rock riprap can be evaluated and reinforced. Crews also will clear vegetation from the island that has developed between the two weirs over past years.

Biologists will use this clearing to revitalize the area - planting it with a variety of native species and resetting it to an early successional stage, which should benefit wildlife.
