The CWCB has partnered with the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD), a regional CTP partner, on floodplain studies in the Denver Metropolitan area. Both partners are participating actively in the preparation of high-quality floodplain mapping and are producing countywide Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs). CWCB prepared new and revised maps to show the effects of increased flood hydrology following large-scale wildfire events, development and growth in previously unstudied areas, and changes in engineering and mapping technology. Additionally, the CWCB has published a Statewide Floodplain and Stormwater Criteria Manual that provides much needed technical guidance for flood-related studies in Colorado.
