Boulder Flooding: One Year Later

This week marks one year since the major flooding along the Front Range due to a storm that’s been estimated as a nearly one in a thousand year rainfall event. This year has been quite wet but there haven’t been any major storms like the one last year.

In the city of Boulder, most of the obvious damage has been repaired. Some trails remain closed, and some of the bridges across ¬†Boulder Creek are still out but otherwise you don’t see much damage in town. In more rural areas, the damage still hasn’t been fixed. Construction on US 36 past Lyons was still going on this summer, and there are undoubtedly a number of houses in the mountains that haven’t been rebuilt.
