Continuous movement and settlement accumulation occurring in Ritchard Dam, in Wolford Mountain Reservoir, is brought to the attention of the Colorado River District board of directors, which will now be responsible for adressing the issue. The 125ft dam, located 5 miles upstream of Kremmling, Colorado, holds back nearly 66,000 acre-feet of water and downward settlement, exceeding acceptable levels, is being recorded since 2008.

With half a million dollars spent to adress direct flooding costs in the U.S. in 2012, flood risk evaluation is still hard to perform, since not all contributing factors are recognized, frequently leading to questionable river basin management decisions. A new study by UC Santa Barbara focuses on the basic principles of flood hazard analysis, indicating that not accounting for channel capacity may result into misleading estimates of the flood susceptibility levels also affecting flood insurance premiums calculation.
