Flood Monitoring Devices Set Up in Waldo Canyon

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have installed rain monitoring equipment in Waldo Canyon beginning November 12. Installing the video monitoring equipment will provide:

  • A real time video feed camera, providing CDOT and USGS with the ability to see if a rain event is producing debris flow or just water
  • A non-contact stage gauge, measuring the depth of flow in Waldo Canyon with radar
  • An additional rain gauge, bolstering CDOT/USGS’s network of rain gauges in the canyon burn scar area
