DEBRIS BASIN CLEANOUT OPERATIONS IN GLENDORA AND AZUSA
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, the LA County Public Works Department is scheduled to begin cleanout operations at a number of flood control debris basins situated in foothills above the cities of Glendora and Azusa. As a result of the Colby Fire, the Englewild, Harrow, Hook East, and Hook West debris basins received significant amounts of sediment in the wake of storms that struck the area on Friday, November 21, 2014. The cleanout is necessary in order to maintain flood protection for downstream communities in advance of further winter storms. The accumulated sediment will be transported to sediment placement sites in Irwindale and San Dimas.
Cleanout operations will be conducted Mondays through Saturdays from 6:00am to 5:30pm, with haul trucks operating between 7:00am and 5:00pm. Truck haul routes will be posted as soon as they are finalized. For additional information or concerns, please call (626) 445-7630.
