Boulder County Flood Recovery Breakdown

Boulder County Flood Recovery Graphic Breakdown

In September, 2013, Boulder County experienced a 100-year flood.

A full week of rainfall and flooding all but shut down the City of Boulder and resulted in extensive damage throughout the county.

Since the flood, the county has made repairs to bridges and roads as well as private property and local businesses. There are also ongoing projects to recover local infrastructure and ecology.

Initially the county estimated that the total cost of repairs would be $217 million, with about $161 million reimbursed by state and federal agencies over the course of five years. So far the financial estimate remains mostly on target, but the timeline will likely be extended. Follow the link above for a graphic breakdown of recovery costs so far and projected costs to come.
