Much of the work being done to help prevent another disaster like the August 9 flood in Manitou Springs can’t be seen. As flood watches and warning continue to threaten the Waldo Canyon burn scar area on an almost daily basis, I sat down with Manitou Mayor Marc Snyder and KRCC News Director Andrea Chalfin to talk about what’s planned and what’s already been done to mitigate the flood threat.
