Founded in 1983, Recreation Engineering and Planning (REP) is based in Boulder, CO and has become the country’s leader in dam modification, whitewater parks and riverside design and restoration. In our 27 years in the business, we have been responsible for more than 80 in-stream design projects—more than 80% of all the whitewater parks in North America. Our work varies in size from small projects where we are tasked with designing a single play wave, to large dam modifications, to environmental restoration and fish passage. REP's success stems from our unique designs and our understanding that all rivers are as unique as the communities they flow through. We believe that the river should integrate itself with the community that surrounds it and that every park should be designed to meet the needs of the entire community. We design parks that combine public safety, recreation, and environmental improvement using natural-appearing engineering solutions that connect communities to their river corridors.
