COMET_CASE_011: COMET Case Study 011: Fort Collins Flood


This case covers the Fort Collins, CO flash flood event which occurred 28-29 July 1997. Backbuilding echoes increased the duration of rainfall. This, in addition to very intense rainfall, combined with urban runoff complexities and resulted in an extreme hydrologic response.
