Stormwater Master Plan

Update 06.20.17

The Town of Estes Park held a public meeting May 11 to provide a forum for community members to weigh in on the developing stormwater master plan.  The plan, currently in early development, will identify problem drainage areas and lay out a path for the Town to complete future drainage improvement projects. Anderson Consulting Engineers provided an overview presentation at the meeting and were then available to discuss areas of drainage concerns presented on maps of the Estes Valley watersheds. 


Stormwater Master Plan Project

The Town of Estes Park's stormwater master plan will identify problem drainage areas and lay out a path for the Town to complete future drainage improvement projects. This plan is a significant first step toward a safer and more sustainable Estes Park. It has been a critical need for Estes Park for many years, and this was never more evident than during the 2013 flood. Many of Estes Park’s existing drainage channels, inlets, culverts and ponds were inadequate to convey the flows that resulted from that rainfall event. The Town suffered significant damage from which it is taking years to recover.
