Authors: Dan Hartman, Kim Soulliere, Kim Soulliere
Is your stormwater system prepared to handle a year’s worth of rainfall in less than a week? That was the test for the City of Golden in 2013. Thanks to a proactive stormwater maintenance routine and reliable GIS data, the City incurred minimal damage. And since we were able to provide detailed reports on recovery efforts and costs, we received FEMA reimbursement within months. Today, Golden is implementing an advanced flood solution that leverages ArcGIS and operations management technology.
