WRAB’s Flood Mitigation Recommendations
The South Boulder Creek Action Group is delighted to let you know that Boulder’s Water Resources Advisory Board passed a series of flood mitigation recommendations last Monday that we wholeheartedly support. Council will hear these recommendations at their hearing on August 7th. Here’s a summary. Click the screen shots below to read the full text of each motion.
- Take the Master Plan Option (formerly know as Option D) off the table.
- Take the Upstream Option (citizen generated design recommended by OSBT) off the table because it involves too much delay, is too costly, and has significant permitting issues.
- Recommend Variant II, 500 year design as the preferred option; followed by Variant II, 100 year; and Variant I, 100 year.
- By recommending a 500 year design as preferred they realize this is unprecedented and not achievable on future flood mitigation projects. Still, they think the benefits are worth it in this instance.
Join us at City Council on August 7th, 2018 to support these recommendations!
