District asks voters to consider a bond program in November.

THE BOND PROJECTS FALL INTO TWO CATEGORIES.

Flood Mitigation Projects - The 2016 Flood Protection Plan was based on a “study to quantify  relative flood risk level within the watershed” … “to identify existing creek flooding concerns, prioritize those concerns, and propose  potential alternatives for the mitigation of the highest priority  concerns”. Projects that would be funded by the bond will mitigate flooding in two of the most at-risk areas in the County. These projects will also protect infrastructure and improve emergency access to the area by reducing flood risk at multiple road crossings.

Dam Rehabilitation Projects - Like all aging infrastructure, dams require rehabilitation to keep them working safely and effectively. The 2020 Dam Assessment Study categorized breach risk using the Joint Federal Risk Category method – an approach developed by multiple federal dam agencies for use in portfolio risk management (FEMA 2015). The Study prioritized rehabilitation projects to evaluate and  implement the most cost-effective ways to alleviate current issues and protect against future ones.
