From KOAA.com (Lena Howland):
In order to mitigate the risk, the city has been working on a number of stormwater projects along North Douglas Creek, South Douglas Creek and Camp Creek, all runoff areas from the burn scar.
“We have not let our guard down, ever since the Waldo Canyon Fire, we’ve had so many opportunities to do repairs and projects in order to prevent any more damage coming from the burn scar, as much as practical,” Kelley said.
All lessons learned, Kelley says they are more prepared to handle flash floods now than they were five years ago.
“We have an operations and maintenance division which responds on the spot to any types of flooding concerns, our emergency operations center is fully functioning and everybody is prepared for this type of an event to occur,” he said.
The City of Colorado Springs has created an Emergency Preparedness Manual for everyone which can be found here.
