Clear Creek FHAD Study from South Platte River to Clear Creek Canyon

Prepared by ICON Engineering for MHFD

The intent of this Flood Hazard Area Delineation (FHAD) effort is to update the hydrologic information of two previous FHAD studies. The first study was completed in December 2005 by Ayres Associates and is titled “Flood Hazard Area Delineation – Clear Creek (Adams County).” The second study is dated April 2007 by ICON Engineering, Inc. and is titled “Flood Hazard Area Delineation – Clear Creek – Jefferson County & City and County of Denver.” This study supersedes the previous studies and provides an up-to-date analysis of the existing floodplain along Clear Creek so that project stakeholders, and other users, can implement floodplain zoning ordinances, floodplain regulations, and other land-use controls, as needed, to reduce potential damages and adverse development in the floodplain.
