The United States Department of Agriculture – Natural Resources Conservation Service is in the initial assessment process following the flood.

Information is needed for this assessment by Tuesday October 1.

If you are a property owner/manager and your land has been affected, or you know of someone’s property who was afTfected, the following information is needed by Tuesday 10/1:

  • Stream channel relocation or scouring along roads or near homes.
  • Irrigation structures damaged or compromised.
  • Debris and/or sediment

With this information we need pictures and estimates of damaged units.  For example if you are near a stream and the stream has caused the banks to eroded, provide  an estimate of the area effected in linear feet and the structure/road that is compromised as a result of the damage.  If it is an irrigation structure, what system the structure is located on, the size of structure, and damage done.  Debris and/or sediment in a stream channel, please let us know an approximation of how much and where the deposition is located.

Please send this information directly to sylvia.hickenlooper@co.usda.gov by Tuesday 10/1.

We understand this is a short deadline, however the information you can provide us is very valuable for the initial phase of the assessment.

Thank you so much for your time regarding this matter.
