Autumn and Winter Maintenance Schedule

During autumn, the District's levee staff focuses on preparation for the rainy season. Sandbags and flood fight materials are inventoried. Excess vegetation is trimmed and removed to allow visibility. Levee roads are resurfaced to provide all-weather drivability. Levee staff attends an annual flood fight training sponsored by the CA Department of Water Resources.

Crews begin patrolling the levees around the District to locate any areas which need last minute maintenance before the rain comes. Once winter sets in, the levees are inspected on a daily basis. If necessary, crews are put on a 24-hour patrol to ensure the integrity of the levee and the safety of the surrounding properties.
