Boulder files damage report on flooding
Last Updated: 16:01 September 27, 2013
The amount is about a third of the estimated $148.6 million Longmont announced as a preliminary figure earlier this week.
Boulder's number could increase, as some infrastructure is still under water or covered by debris and is yet to be assessed.
Open Space and Mountain Parks sustained the largest chunk of damage at $17.7 million. The city estimates that 93 of the 145 miles of trails within the OSMP system have significant to severe damage.
The city's stormwater and flood utilities took a big hit at $13.9 million. That covers inspecting and cleaning all 160 miles of pipe in the storm sewer system, as well as reconstructing drainageway features and removing large amounts of sediment and debris.
Transportation took a $6 million hit, with 1 percent of the city's 300 miles of roads sustaining damage and 60 miles covered in debris. In addition nine miles, or 15 percent, of the city's bike paths were damaged.
The city said 306 of its 365 buildings and structures have been assessed, with 35 sustaining damage to the tune of $3.2 million.
Other figures in the report included $3.3 million in damage to water-utility infrastructure, $2.5 million to wastewater-utility infrastructure, and $2.4 million to parks and recreation.
