Project Overview

The Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater (CFS) Master Plan is the guiding policy document for Boulder's Stormwater and Flood Utility.

The purpose of the Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master 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.

Master Plan

The Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan was approved by city council in Sept. 2022.

The Plan is composed of two volumes as follows:

Volume I is intended for a general audience with summary level information consistent with other master plans and is available in English and El Volumen 1 está disponible en español.

Volume II contains more detail and is the compilation of eleven Technical Memos on various flood and storm topics. It’s intended for an audience who have or desire a detailed knowledge of the flood and stormwater system. Because of the length of the document, it hasn’t been translated. However, highlights from each chapter are included in the English and Spanish
