The new stream design is engineered for the capacity of 1,400 cfs. Nuisance flooding may begin at the 1250 cfs level, which can consist of bank overflow and puddling in low areas. Currently, the Lyons Fire Protection District, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, and the Town of Lyons are communicating and monitoring any significant changes.
