Flood Awareness: Resources for Solano County

Jan 20, 2023 12:00AM ● By SRCD News

SOLANO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Recent storm events are an unpleasant reminder that many areas of Solano County are at risk of flooding.  The Solano Resource Conservation District, Solano County Water Agency and County of Solano would like to remind residents that there are a variety of flood control resources available online:

The Real-time Rainfall and Creek Levels tool allows residents to view real-time stream depth and rainfall data from gages around the County.  A link to this site can be found on the Solano County Water Agency’s home page: www.scwa2.com 

Up to date information on flood preparedness and statewide resources can be found at: www.solanocounty.com/stormready

Ready for the Flood: an awareness and preparation manual for Solano County residents is a useful booklet, available in both English and Spanish, that outlines the resources available in the County for those residents at risk of flooding.  It has advice for preparing your home and family for emergency situations, examples of flood control projects and steps residents can take to minimize property damage.  Printed manuals can be requested from the Solano Resource Conservation District, and online versions can be found in the Resources section at: www.solanorcd.org

If your property would benefit from sandbags during storm events, you can bring a shovel and find the materials you need at a variety of locations around the County.  Details can be found at: www.solanocounty.com/sandbags

A great way to stay current on road closures, evacuation orders and other storm information is on the County Office of Emergency Services Facebook page: www.facebook.com/solanooes

To receive emergency alerts from County agencies on any of your devices, sign up for the Alert Solano system: www.alertsolano.com

If your property burned in the 2020 LNU fire and you have concerns about landslides or large downed trees in waterways in the Pleasants Valley area, please contact the Solano Resource Conservation District at [email protected]
