Flash Floods in Boulder, Colorado


FREAK STORM: Boulder, Colorado awoke to extensive flash flooding this morning, brought on my overnight heavy rainfall amounts. Everyone understands and appreciates the damage that a wild coastal storm can bring to an area, but even landlocked states endure flooding concerns. The combination of too much water + too short a period of time = flooding. Every time.

FLOOD WATER VS. GROUND WATER: There is a big distinction between flood water entering your home versus ground water seeping in through the foundation (as a  result of the water tables beneath your house rising). Flood water is riddled with pesticides, chemical run off, and possibly even sewage. As a result, if flood water enters your home, I’d advise you to throw out anything that can not be properly sanitized. If the water is seeping up through the ground, it’s a matter of drying everything out to avoid the risk of mold developing.
