Spring Creek flooding concerns.

Posted on February 14, 2019 at 3:45 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  Spring Creek over the last few years has filled with sediment and plant growth. When this has occurred in the past there have been incidents of flooding in the residential areas along the creek. Are there plans to clear the creek so it will perform as it should in time of need as a flood control aqueduct?

A.  Due to new environmental restrictions, the City is no longer able to clean out the sediment in the Spring Creek channel as we have done in the past. Because of this, the City has investigated other solutions and will implement these alternatives as funding allows.
