Flood Damage And Repair To Water Systems Shown On Boulder County Water Tour

By Janaki Jane, Colorado Spirit
Boulder County is fortunate. Boulder County has three river drainages that are sources of native water; that is, water from within the watershed. This native water allows agriculture to flourish and the residents of Boulder and Longmont to have green lawns. However, this good fortune became bad fortune last September.

Historic Buildings Bring Magic To A Town

By Kathleen Spring
Each year, Coloradans are saving churches, schools, streams, journals, and more to enjoy now and for future generations. Annually in May, state and local counties recognize significant history preservation projects that have taken place during the previous year. While people, cities, counties, and groups are honored with certificates and plaques for their outstanding history preservation achievements, the biggest benefit of having these award ceremonies is so that the public can become aware of the many projects that are going on to preserve their surrounding buildings, parks, archives and more. Coloradans can reap the benefits, and take pride in their town, enjoying or accessing these useful and often beautiful treasures.

There is a little over 1000 cfs of runoff in the river now, and during the flood there was 30,000! Wow. We are truly lucky to be alive!
