The Town of Parker has many drainageway corridors that are set aside for open space, trails and flood protection. The corridors are continually managed to ensure the functions are not impaired. While trails are maintained and the open space vegetation is managed, the overall flood capacity is also carefully analyzed.
The Town has not allowed development encroachment into these corridors to ensure there is adequate space to safely convey the 100-year flood discharge. These corridors also require routine inspections and maintenance to ensure there are no excessive debris blockages that could block a road crossing during a flood or channel and bank instability that could result in a shift of the flood flows. Dumping of yard waste and/or trash in the storm system and open spaces could lead to large debris blockages that may cause flooding downstream. Please do your part in keeping these corridors clear of debris and safe from flooding.
