History

Date Posted to GIS:
2005
  • 1995: The initial alluvial fan information was collected by KWL and Assoc in 1995. The resulting ESRI shapefile was then submitted to the DNV depicting the location of these geographic features.
  • 2005: Debris fans were assessed for their potential threat to public safety. KWL and Associates conducted an analytical study on the potential hazard posed by the debris fans. The results of the study are stored in the feature class called SafDebrisFlowPotential.
