The Pueblo Flood and Levee Construction

Levee Location

Following the Flood of 1921, local authorities constructed a levee to protect downtown Pueblo. This map section displays the location of the new levee just south of the Union Depot. To the north, the previous location of the river is outlined on the map to help display the difference in location. Though the river was only moved four blocks south, the new location, along with the protection that the levee provided, has kept downtown Pueblo from flooding for over one hundred years now.
