USACE Open House Takes Place in Arvada

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the City of Arvada and the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District, will hold an open house on Tuesday, May 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Arvada City Hall (Anne Campbell Room) in Arvada, Colorado. 

The objective of this study is to find solutions to reduce flood risks and improve public safety along approximately 3.5 miles of Ralston Creek within the city limits of Arvada.

“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,” USACE said.

A formal presentation on the study will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Background

Over the past 40 years, new development in the Ralston Creek watershed has increased the threat of flash flooding in Arvada.

Today, flooding impacts approximately $72 million in property, including more than 400 homes, located in the 100-year floodplain.

The feasibility study will analyze conditions along Ralston Creek from Beech Street (upstream limit) to the confluence with Van Bibber Creek (downstream limit) along with the engineering feasibility, economic viability and environmental considerations of potential flood risk management solutions.
