Mapping the Boulder Floods

In Sept. 2013, a 1,000-year rainfall and 100-year flood ravaged Colorado’s Front Range, killing ten people and creating hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage. Three years later, workers and volunteers are still making repairs to homes, local infrastructure, and ecological areas like creek beds and open spaces. Boulder County is just past the half-way mark in their five-year plan to repair and improve areas impacted by the floods. Below is a map of flood disaster emergency areas as designated by a 2013 executive order, as well as peak flow ares during the flood and FEMA disaster recovery projects across the state.
