Creek and Channel Safety Awareness Program
In 2011, the Board of Supervisors declared October as the first annual Creek and Channel Safety Month, and directed the Flood Control District to continue implementation of the Creek and Channel Safety Program.
As the rains begin, please be aware that water levels will rise in the creeks and channels. The water is cold, swift-moving, and full of debris. Appreciate the great jobs that creeks and channels do to protect our community from flooding, protect yourselves and your loved ones, and
STAY OUT, STAY ALIVE!
