Road Damaged by Flooding Flood Hydrology Reports Available
CWCB, in partnership with CDOT, has undertaken an extensive hydrology study for major watersheds impacted by the September 2013 flood.  The study goals included flood hydrology updates for these watersheds using current rainfall-runoff modeling techniques and modern rainfall data. The hydrology models use detailed information from the 2013 flood to calibrate results. The new study results can be used to update floodplain maps throughout the flood-affected area. To access these studies please see "Post Flood Reports" on the right side of the 2013 Flood Response page.
