1 min read


DENVER (KDVR) — Many parts of the Denver metro were still cleaning up Monday night from flash flooding on Sunday.

Several drivers on Interstate 70 had to be rescued and carried to dry ground as significant rainfall poured in a short amount of time. The construction company responsible for work on the Central 70 Project said an error in its drainage pump system prevented the pumps from turning on automatically Sunday.

The floods have many wondering if it’s time to rethink some of the drainage systems in their neighborhood.

FOX31 checked in with Denver to see how its flood protection systems performed under the stress.
