Coronavirus Update:

MHFD is going remote (temporarily). Public safety is MHFD’s primary concern. To ensure the wellbeing of our employees, MHFD staff will be working remotely for the foreseeable future. In doing so, we will live up to our social responsibility to prevent the COVID-19 from spreading further, while ensuring business continuity that supports our communities and the economies in which we operate. Wishing everyone health and safety during these unprecedented times.

About Us

Our Story

Storms are a part of every climate, everywhere in the world and no matter where you live, they’re a fact of life. The larger the storm, the bigger the impact and the flooding repercussions from the more severe events can send out ripple effects—from physical damage to the community to the emotional psyche of residents. That’s why it’s so important to have a proven resource in the Denver metro area that proactively protects against those ripples.

The Mile High Flood District is that resource. Our passionate people and their applied expertise have helped us create innovative solutions that address stormwater and watershed holistically. Together, we protect people, property, and our environment through preservation, mitigation, and education.

Our Mission & Vision

We designed our mission and vision statements to be living, breathing reflections of who we are and what we want to accomplish. That’s why they aren’t just written down someplace to be forgotten. Each and every MHFD team member has them memorized to ensure we live them every day.

Our mission is to protect people, property, and our environment through preservation, mitigation, and education.

Our vision is to be the Denver region’s most trusted resource for stream preservation and flood solutions.

These statements keep us grounded and act as guides for what we do today and will continue to do in the future.
