Proposed Draft Floodplain Mapping
Tonight, Dec. 21 | 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Lyons Town Hall Board Room
Following the 2013 flood, the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) initiated a program to re-map the predicted 1% chance regulatory floodplain (100-year flood zone) of the most affected waterways. The program was named the "Colorado Hazard Mapping Program" or "CHAMP".
The CWCB draft floodplain maps will reflect changes to waterways caused by the 2013 flood and the recovery work since that flood. They'll also utilize more accurate data and advanced technology than was available when the current maps were created. As a result, the CWCB draft maps will be a more accurate representation of the anticipated 1% annual flood elevation and therefore more precisely reflect the flood risk for residents than the existing regulatory floodplain maps.
