Land Use, Transportation and Public Health staff to open Flood Recovery Center on Monday, Oct. 14


The new flood recovery center will serve to help residents of unincorporated Boulder County navigate through the flood rebuilding process


Boulder County, Colo. – As part of the effort to assist property owners and residents impacted by the unprecedented flooding events of September 2013 which caused extensive damage and destruction of personal property, Boulder County has set up a Flood Recovery Center at the county’s Land Use Department in downtown Boulder.


The Flood Recover Center (FRC) will be staffed by functional experts in onsite wastewater (septic) systems, floodplain regulations, transportation, planning and building codes. The center and the county will also pursue other restoration resources and hazard mitigation programs to assist those impacted.


What:  Flood Recovery Center (FRC) opens to the public

When:  Beginning Monday, October 14, hours are 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. M–F

Where:  Land Use Department, 2045 13th St., Boulder

Contact:, 303-441-1705


Flood-impacted residents of unincorporated Boulder County who wish to begin the rebuilding process are encouraged to stop by the FRC to speak with a staff member. Residents can also email the Flood Recovery Center staff at or call 303-441-1705.


Questions that residents may have include:

  • What are the floodplain/floodway regulations and how do they affect my property?
  • Do I need to have a structural engineer to inspect the safety of my home?
  • My private residential bridge/culvert/driveway was destroyed by the flood, how do I begin repairs?
  • My property was affected by the flood but I don’t know what impact it had to my septic system. How do I know if the system is still working properly?


Boulder County is planning for the need and desire to rebuild quickly and restore the community while implementing measures to protect public safety and investments through hazard mitigation and avoidance. Staff is committed to understanding the needs and issues of residents who are facing complex issues to restore their homes, property and lives.
