Camp Creek

Current Status: Wilson and Company began work on the Camp Creek project September 2013.  They held their third open house on February 25, 2014. The project team is currently developing the proposed plan.

Background: Camp Creek flows southward from the Navigators campus through Garden of the Gods Park and along 31stStreet in the Pleasant Valley neighborhood. Since the Waldo Canyon Fire, rainfall events have produced greater amounts of sediment and debris loads and have increased stormwater runoff in Camp Creek.  These factors make the already aging and deteriorating channel along 31stStreet even more susceptible to flooding and damage.

The city has selected the consulting firm Wilson and Company to lead community meetings and perform analysis on the drainage basin to develop alternatives and a preferred course of action for construction of flood mitigation structures/facilities.
