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.
