Knowledge is Power!#

Stay Informed During a Flood#

Have you ever wondered how much rain is falling near your house or what the flow rate is on the Poudre River?  You can access real-time data from the City’s early flood warning system that includes streamflow and precipitation gages throughout the city.

Staff from Utilities and the City’s Office of Emergency Preparedness are notified when gages register stream flow depths or rainfall intensities that exceed preset thresholds.

Did You Know?

To keep your dryer working at its best, make sure its vent pipe is not kinked or blocked.

Changing your hot tub setting to "economy mode" can save energy and money. 

When it rains and as snow melts, runoff carries pollutants such as oil, antifreeze and gas down storm drains, contaminating our rivers, streams and lakes. Don't drip and drive.
