Boulder Creek, Colo., at Flood Stage

Detailed Description

This bridge is at 75th Street east of Boulder showing Boulder Creek at flood stage (5000 cfs) on Friday, September 13, 2013. When looking west (upstream), the USGS streamgage is on the right.

Numerous rivers flooded during a significant September 2013 rain event along Colorado's Front Range, damaging or destroying several USGS streamgages. In response, USGS field crews measured flood flows, made gage repairs, and assessed sites to replace those gages destroyed.
