Despite the significant evolution in the health of the South Platte, the reality of trash and other forms of pollution continue to be an ongoing challenge to the River. In response to this reality and thanks to a grant from the Rose Community Foundation’s “Innovate for Good” initiative, The Greenway Foundation (TGF), in collaboration with Metropolitan State University of Denver’s One World One Water (OWOW) Center, created the Clean River Design Challenge. Students at MSU are designing trash removal devices that can be placed on Cherry Creek in Downtown Denver where the effectiveness of the device can be observed. This competition will both raise awareness of, and strive towards the development of solutions to this source of pollution in the South Platte River and its tributaries.

On December 4, 2015, ten teams presented their designs at to a panel of expert judges from TGF, TWC, City and County of Denver, OWOW the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant and the Rose Community Foundation.

Based on quality of design and likelihood of its potential success, five teams were chosen to receive funds to create their device. These top competitors will then test their devices on the Cherry Creek in Confluence Park in conjunction with TGF’s Spring RiverSweep.
