Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
How does the Flood Control District determine where a sediment placement site
should be?

ANSWER:
The District seeks locations that have a large storage capacity for sediment placement. The
District also looks for areas that are physically accessible to trucks and reasonably close to
District debris retention facilities. Other desirable attributes include locations that are some
distance from residences or with access points that do not travel through densely populated
residential communities.
