Creek and Channel Safety Awareness Program
As the rains begin, please be aware that water levels will rise in the creeks and channels. The water is cold, swift-moving, and full of debris. Appreciate the great jobs creeks and channels do to protect our community from flooding; protect yourselves and your loved ones – but most importantly,
-Be aware of fences and warning signs identifying the flood control channels
-Stay out of the channels
-If you see a person in the channel, immediately call 911
-Inform your family members about the Program and it's messages.
