Please contact the Telecomunications History Group at 303-296-1221. They have information about the telephone operators who stayed in their building as a communications center during the flood to alert the community, saving many lives.


I am a civil engineer for the Bureau of Reclamation and we use information from case histories like these to help us make our dams safer and develop emergency action plans. The purpose of these plans is to ensure communities/residents within the flood plane have adequate warning to take precautionary measures in case a significant flood occurs.


Hi Ron,

Thanks for your comment. I'm glad this blog could add to your case histories. Thank you for reading!
