As the Ditch Authority since 1959, CCWD maintains a 135-mile ditch system to balance drainage and flooding to protect properties. Scroll down to find out more by clicking on the sections!
We are back to ‘normal’ flood risk now.
Due to effective planning, preparation, monitoring, maintenance, collaboration, and communication we’ve prevented significant or unanticipated flood damages in the CCWD from this year’s historic snowmelt.
We also do customized floodplain modelling for our cities and have a permitting program so construction projects don’t inadvertently flood properties now or in future.
Excavation, tree work, bank stabilizations
We inspect in detail 20% of our 135-miles of ditches plus other stormwater infrastructure
