Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
What was the impact to the District's facilities due to the Station Fire?

ANSWER:
As a result of the Station Fire of 2009 as well as the Merek, Sesnon, and Sayre Fires of 2008, the Flood Control District's management responsibilities have far exceeded previous 20-year projections of the quantity of sediment the District would have to manage to provide flood risk management and water conservation for the region. In order to address the rapidly diminishing capacity of sediment placement sites, the development of a Sediment Management Strategic Plan has been undertaken. The goal is to develop a sustainable plan for sediment management by balancing economic, environmental, and social impacts.
