A 15-foot ledge is inching its way closer to several homes in southwest Colorado Springs.
The city’s storm water manager says the fix is a priority, but can it wait?
The city admits that Sand Creek isn’t maintained. Due to recent rains and July’s huge hailstorm the channel is growing wider and washing away the land.
Homes are now just feet away from a 15-foot drop-off…
Kelley says his team is ready to take action.
“This area is a top priority. I say that because it’s actually going into construction in 2016,” said Kelley.
The city of Colorado Springs is using $1.3 million of FEMA money to secure the channel.
“We are anticipating construction to begin in November after the monsoon,” said Kelley.
