Stormwater/Water Resources Engineering


Work is underway  just north of Woodmen Road between Rangewood Drive and Yellowwood Drive to build a full spectrum detention pond to help manage stormwater flows and maintain the quality of water returning back to our creeks.

Thanks to voter approval allowing the City to retain $6 million in excess revenues over the TABOR cap for 2016 to be used for stormwater projects, neighbors near Airport and Chelton will see some welcome relief from localized flooding that has been impacting this neighborhood.

Help us clean up the creek!

El Paso County is hosting this event.

Crews were working on a significant stormwater project to address localized flooding near Taylor Elementary School in the Patty Jewett neighborhood when Wednesday’s (July 27, 2017) storm caused significant damage to the project area.

Work is complete on the first of three phases of construction to stabilize Monument Branch, a natural waterway near I-25 and Voyager that empties onto the Air Force Academy.
