DENVER — The U.S. Agriculture Department said Thursday it will spend another $57 million on recovery work on Colorado rivers and streams that were damaged by the 2013 flood.

Most of the work will be done in Boulder, El Paso and Larimer counties, along with other projects in Jefferson, Morgan and Weld counties, officials said.

Projects can include shoring up eroded banks, removing debris and reseeding hillsides with trees and other vegetation, said Jason Weller, chief of the National Resources Conservation Service, part of the Agriculture Department. Work can be done on public or private land if requested by a state or local government agency, he said.
