Floodplain Mapping and Risk Assessment

As part of the ongoing Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) project, the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) began survey activities in March 2022.

Floodplain survey activities are currently planned to start in March and could take several months, focusing on several flooding sources located in some of the incorporated communities and in unincorporated areas of Fremont County. According to the CWCB, the survey crews will be collecting elevation and other basic information on the land around the waterways being studied, and will not dig around nor disturb the areas. The survey crews will make every effort to stay on public lands and public rights of way. However, it may be necessary for the surveyors to enter private property for short periods of time. Should this occur, a contractor employee or an employee of the state will make every attempt to notify the property owner in advance to obtain access to the property?

Surveying will be taking place around or in the outlying areas of, BROOKSIDE, MUDD GULCH, NE CANNON DRAIN AREA (East and West), OAK CREEK (Florence, Rockvale, Williamsburg and Fremont County Area), BIG COTTONWOOD CREEK, CHERRY CREEK, HAMILTON CREEK, HAYDEN CREEK, STOUT CREEK, HOWARD CREEK, LINCOLN PARK and SAND CREEK
