Aftermath Colorado Floods
- katie, CNN iReport producer
These photos were taken today at 11:00 am Mountain Time at 3 locations: the Water Treatment plant in Thornton where the path is completly gone, 104th ave bridge where you see the debris remaining after the flooding that did reach the bridge above, and at 112th and chambers where grass berms have water on both sides which is not typical. Again if the city would clean out these drainage ditches frequently in liu of the not at all we are used to , there would be less damage. Yes the damage would still exist but imagine if the water could have freely transported through the drainage system and not been hel dup by all the grabage it ran into through the travel. More overfill ponds and lakes that sit literally 1 mile from flooded farms are still 15 to 20 feet low, and were not filled by these flood waters. Tremendous cost has hit us here at Colorado.
