Wildfire Vulnerability

In 2010, JW Associates completed a watershed wildfire assessment of the Upper CLP watershed (PDF 28MB). The assessment included identification of zones of concern and an initial screening of potential opportunities and constraints for watershed protection within the zones of concern. Four stakeholder meetings were held as part of the project to build collaborative support for the assessment. A similar study is being conducted in 2011 for the Big Thompson watershed and will involve several collaborators.
