Boulder Flood Damage Breakdown

by Osman Parvez

The majority of flood damage to public infrastructure in Boulder impacted open space and mountain parks and stormwater/flood systems, according to a preliminary report.  

The total damages are estimated at $48.9MM.   Here's a chart.

data:   City of Boulder

93 miles of the 145 miles of trails within the OSMP system have significant to severe damage.  35 of the 98 parks and recreation facilities have significant damage.    

Just 1 percent (or three miles) of roads, citywide, have been damaged.  

The City of Boulder has 60 miles of bike path within city limits. Approximately, 15 percent, or nine miles, of the path was damaged.
Obviously, the above excludes damage to private property.
