Dams - Watershed Flood Control Dams
The Douglas County Conservation District are the sponsors along with Douglas County of 22 flood control dams throughout the county. The watershed project was developed for three general purposes: to prevent damage from erosion, floodwater, and sediment; to further the conservation, developments, utilization, and disposal of water; and to further the conservation and proper utilization of land. The district has an ongoing program to maintain, and keep these 22 dams in working order. All of the dams within this project have a recorded easement which allows the district and Douglas County access to the dams at anytime to conduct inspections and make any necessary repairs. If you have any questions, or if you think that you have one of these flood control dams on your property, please call us at 303-218-2622 or email us.
Whenever an individual or company submits a proposal to the county to consider a change in zoning, an addition or change of a subdivision, a special use review, or a completely new development, the county must refer the requests to the district by law. The district then reviews each proposal and gives recommendations on soil suitability, floodwater problems, and watershed protection which would include erosion and sediment control, noxious weed control, proper grazing management, etc. What the district reviews.
