RIP Bill Taggart
Bill Taggart of WHPacific, Inc. suffered a heart attack while driving and died at St Anthony’s hospital on December 16. Bill was a senior engineer with over 40 years of professional experience. His legacy of experience includes numerous landmark and award-winning projects, notably co-authoring the first Denver Urban Drainage Criteria Manual, completion of the Confluence Park project in 1974 (the first urban in-stream whitewater boating facility in the country), the water features at the Denver Botanic Gardens, pioneered the design and use of grouted boulders for drop structures and channel stabilization, and many other projects that set the standard for drainage and flood control design in the Denver Metro Area and nationwide.
This is a great loss with his all-too-soon departure, and he will be greatly missed.
Services have been scheduled for this Sunday 12/21 at 1pm at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
