Know the Floodplain Regulations#
Before you begin any construction (new development, addition, remodel, repair, filling, grading, excavation, etc.) on your building or property, contact Floodplain Administration staff at 970-416-2632 for specific floodplain regulation requirements. A floodplain use permit is required for any work done in the floodplain.
The Poudre River has different regulations than the other basins.
The regulations are designed to:
- Protect the health and safety of citizens
- Minimize property damage when a flood occurs
- Ensure new development does not make flooding worse
Floodplain review fees are required at the time of submittal of any floodplain use permit, variance request, or floodplain study.
There are numerous technical standards and guidelines that must be followed depending on the project details.
