STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – This year many mountain towns received record snow. That’s good news for people who rely on the mountains for drinking water, but all the snow can cause problems if it melts too quickly.

Spring storms and snowmelt led to flooding in downtown Steamboat Springs. The streets were flooded and people had to pump water from downtown businesses.

The Steamboat area saw record snow this year. Sandbags were lined up along store fronts on Saturday.

Rivers and creeks are out of their banks and sewers and drains are overwhelmed.
