2013 Colorado floods public assistance consulting and debris management – FEMA (Larimer County, Colorado)
The northern Front Range of Colorado experienced the most devastating floods to hit the state in the last 40 years. Of all the affected areas, Larimer County was one of the three most affected areas. CDR Maguire was contracted to maximize the county’s recovery efforts and has successfully recovered over $50 million in recovery and mitigation funds. Our team continues to support Larimer County’s recovery while identifying additional funding opportunities.
PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
- CDR Maguire effectively advocated for FEMA reimbursement of streambed debris removal to address the County’s public health and safety concerns during the 2014 spring runoff
- We successfully argued with FEMA on the County’s behalf for asbestos abatement resulting in savings of up to $35,000 for each home slated for demolition.
- CDR Maguire uncovered and identified hundreds of thousands of dollars for reimbursement that were expended by the County and would have otherwise been missed.
The CDR Maguire Team provided similar post-flood services to the City of Boulder.
