Thank you to everyone who participated in the hazard mitigation survey and provided valuable feedback about the types of emergencies the county should focus on as it updates its Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Just as Weld County prepares for emergencies, it’s equally important our residents take steps to protect themselves, their homes and businesses. One common hazard to be plan for is a flood.
• Did you know? According the Federal Emergency Management Agency, one inch of floodwater in your home can cause $25,000 in damages!
Protect your property by:
• Determining the Base Flood Elevation on your property to determine how high water could rise in a flood. Say a house sits in a floodplain and based on the 100-year flood data, the house could see a minimum of 1 foot of flood water, that’s the Base Flood Elevation for that house.
• Elevating mechanical units one foot above the Base Flood Elevation to keep them from being damaged by rising water.
• Installing a sewer backflow valve.
• Making ground level and basement flooring more resistant to flood related damage by replacing carpet with tile.
