The flood control program maintains all storm drain facilities and creeks within the City
and coordinates emergency response during heavy storms. Program goals are 1) a
well-designed and well-maintained storm drainage system which prevents loss of life and
minimizes property damage from flooding and 2) a creek system maintained in its natural
state. This program has two major activities:
- Storm drain and creek
Cleaning and maintaining creeks and storm drainage facilities; constructing various
improvements to stabilize creek banks; locating underground storm drainage facilities for
Underground Service Alert; coordinating cooperative creek maintenance among property
owners and public agencies; inspecting waterways passing through private property for
litter and pollution.
- Storm emergency response
Responding to calls for emergency assistance during and after heavy storms; distributing
sandbags during heavy storms.
