Glenwood Springs
Debris Flow Hazard Zones

 Location:   Northwest District, Colorado River Valley Field Office

Size:   6,100 acres

Designated:  1984 Glenwood Springs Land Use Plan

Land Manager:   Bureau of Land Management, Colorado River Valley Field Office


The 6,100-acre Glenwood Springs Debris Flow Hazard Zones ACEC was designated to ensure public safety because the area is prone to mass wasting processes. Additionally, debris flows, slump, and rock fall pose threats to lives and property in the area. The ACEC also contains a genetically pure population of native, wild, naturally-reproducing Colorado River cutthroat trout identified as a core conservation population in Mitchell Creek.
