Colorado’s Water Watchers Celebrate Wettest Year in Some Areas in 128 Years

Residents living along Colorado’s northern Front Range and Northeastern Plains experienced a pretty wet year — the wettest, in fact, in 128 years.

And water experts expect this winter isn’t likely to be much different.

Becky Bolinger, assistant state climatologist at the Colorado Climate Center, said those areas had the wettest year since the state started keeping those records 128 years ago.
