High Water Mark

Visual survey by our staff give a an accurate high water mark on the South St. Vrain Creek, Welch Court, Main St, South 5th Avenue, Bohn Park, Meadow Park and points to the east.

We are less sure about Apple Valley and West  Main St. The conture of the land is the best guide there.
