From KKCO (Grand Junction):

[The National Weather Service] talked to emergency management, police and local residents, used flood data from past years and even looked at aerial photos. The conclusion they came up with: change the flood stage from 12 feet to 12.5 feet. “This means is that when we issue a warning we’re more confident that it’s not going to be a false alarm and it will actually be at a point which it can impact lives and property,” says Lawrence.
