Flood Control Plan Update Available for Review
December 06, 2010
The Placer County Flood Control and Water Conservation District has announced the availability of the draft 2010 Update to the Dry Creek Flood Control Plan for public review and comment.
The Dry Creek Flood Control Plan was originally prepared in 1992. It provided the District and local governments with guidance on flood-related impacts and an approach to meeting existing and future flood control needs within the Dry Creek watershed. The watershed is located in western Placer County. The plan recommended structural and non-structural measures to correct existing deficiencies and mitigate future impacts from development. Some recommendations have been implemented, while many have not, due to environmental and/or economic constraints.
The primary purpose of the 2010 Update to the Dry Creek Flood Control Plan is to update the hydrologic analysis of the watershed, provide recommendations to reduce future flood damages, identify means to mitigate development impacts on flooding, and recommend an updated funding plan.
Over the next 30 days the District is seeking public input and comment on the Draft Final 2010 Updated Dry Creek Watershed Flood Control Plan. The Plan can be downloaded and by clicking the following link: Dry Creek Flood Control Plan. Comments to the updated plan are due by Jan. 7, 2011, and may be submitted by e-mail to Andrew Darrow or by mail at: Placer County Flood Control & Water Conservation District, 3091 County Center Drive, Suite 220, Auburn, CA 95603, attention Andrew Darrow.
