Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan
The Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan is the guiding policy document for Boulder's Stormwater and Flood Utility. The purpose of the plan is to improve the management of stormwater to help protect people, places, property and ecosystems in the City of Boulder in a way that builds resilience and is consistent with community values.
City Council approved the current Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan in 2004, and the Stormwater Master Plan was adopted in 2017. The Flood Management Overview provides important information regarding the city's flood history and risk as well as the various components of the city's flood management program.
In 2020, the city started a project to update the 2004 Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan. The master planning efforts will include a public process to gather ideas and feedback from the community. The Mile High Flood District will also contribute funding and assistance. Tetra Tech has been hired as a consultant on the project.
