With the annual spring runoff approaching, the threat of more flooding across Boulder County is back. The county will be conducting a series of meetings on each major watershed.

The Spring Runoff & Community Preparedness Meetings will include updates on recovery projects from last September’s flooding, as well as information on the potential for summer flooding.

“We’re going to be talking to residents about the types of conditions that are in their local areas. What the county is going to be doing about it when and in the meantime how residents can best get ready for possible events,” said Julie McKay, the project lead for Boulder County’s Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative.
