Draft Environmental Impact Statement - Cherry Creek Dam Safety Mod Study

Posted: 12/10/2018

Expiration date: 1/28/2019


Summary: In 2015, the Omaha District initiated a dam safety modification study in response to Cherry Creek Dam receiving an elevated risk rating through the USACE risk characterization process primarily because of the dam’s large downstream population and the potential for overtopping issues during an extremely rare precipitation event. A series of public scoping meetings were held in cooperation with the Denver Office of Emergency Management Homeland Security to begin development of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). After incorporating public comments and conducting detailed economic and risk analysis, the draft EIS recommends No Action.

Geographic Scope: Cherry Creek Dam, Arapahoe County, Colorado

Proposed Alternative: No Action
