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.
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.
The Mile High Flood District provides services to all or parts of 41 local governments in the Denver region.
