Colorado College Report Shows Urban Heat Islands in Colorado Springs

A new Colorado College report shows parts of Colorado Springs are subject to urban heat islands. 

It’s the rise in temperature for a man-made area. 

The effect can include a jump in temperature of up to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

The college presented their findings to the Colorado Springs City Council Monday.

The college suggested a rain barrel program to help manage water scarcity, and mitigation of wildland-urban interface areas.
