Open House on Flood Risk Management Takes Place in Longmont

An open house to share details about a flood risk management study between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, and the City of Longmont will be held on February 16, at the Longmont Museum in Longmont, Colorado. 

The flood risk management study will build on Resilient St. Vrain, Longmont’s extensive, multi-year undertaking to fully restore the St. Vrain Greenway and improve the St. Vrain Creek channel to mitigate future flood risk to the community.

The Resilient St. Vrain project was created in response to the catastrophic flooding that damaged much of Longmont in September 2013.

The open house, which will also serve as a public scoping meeting per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), will give residents and others interested in the project a chance to learn why the study is important, learn what will be done during the study process, learn about the possible benefits and provide specific concerns and input.

Through the study, the Omaha District will analyze conditions within a portion of the St. Vrain Creek’s city reach.

The study area consists of the St. Vrain Creek and surrounding area between Golden Ponds Park (at the upstream confluence of the St. Vrain Creek and Lykins Gulch) to the BNSF railroad bridge (near the pedestrian bridge that connects Price Road).

The study will evaluate the engineering feasibility, economic benefits and environmental considerations for potential flood risk management improvements within the study area.
