Public Invited to Attend High Water Mark Sign Unveiling

Posted on: Sep-06-2017

Events mark fourth anniversary of 2013 Flood.

LOVELAND, Sept. 6, 2017 - The Cities of Loveland and Fort Collins, and Larimer County invite residents to join City Council, County Commissioners, and City and County staff from these communities, and other state and federal officials for high water mark sign unveilings commemorating the 2013 Flood.

These events mark the fourth anniversary of the flood that decimated sections of U.S. Highway 34 and caused significant damage to communities throughout Larimer County and many other areas along the northern Front Range.

Three separate sign unveilings will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9 for each entity:

- Larimer County, 10 a.m. at Sleepy Hollow County Park, 2131 W. Highway 34, Estes Park (Big Thompson Canyon, eastbound lane, south pull-off)
- City of Loveland, 1 p.m. at Fairgrounds Park, 700 S. Railroad Ave., Loveland
- City of Fort Collins, 3 p.m. at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, 408 Mason Ct., Fort Collins

Additional signs will eventually be installed along the Big Thompson River in City parks in Loveland, along the Big and Little Thompson Canyons by Larimer County, and in Fort Collins along the Poudre River.

The signs aim to focus attention on the effects that floodwaters can have in this area and the benefits of mitigation. The goal of the program is to ensure that the public remains diligent about taking ongoing actions to protect themselves, their property and their communities from future floods.
