The Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers (CASFM) is an organization of professionals involved in floodplain and stormwater management, water quality, flood hazard mitigation and flood preparedness. CASFM represents the interests of stormwater managers and flood hazard specialists from local and state government, the research community, the insurance industry, and consulting engineers.
CASFM has grown to a membership of over 800 since its formation in 1989. Today, in our efforts to be a vibrant and effective organization, bi-monthly general meetings are held at different locations; workshops and training classes are held a number of times each year; field trips are held as projects dictate; and an Annual Conference is held each fall.
