Ross Valley Flood Protection Set for Next Week

On February 4, Ross Valley residents will get a chance to learn more about local flood risk reduction projects, including how improvements to Lefty Gomez Field in Fairfax could help reduce downstream flooding.

Representatives of the Ross Valley Flood Protection & Watershed Program will host the meeting at 7 p.m. at White Hill Middle School in Fairfax.

Last November, voters decided not to use Memorial Park in San Anselmo as a floodwater detention basin, but exploration of other options throughout Ross Valley and prevention of another catastrophe remains the ultimate program goal.

Officials are readjusting and keeping their focus on the community’s overall flood protection.

Later this winter, environmental review will begin for improvements to the decades-stalled U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project and creek capacity improvements in Ross. This spring, the Phoenix Lake retrofit project that will help reduce flooding in Ross and Kentfield will enter the environmental review and design process.

Dredging and storm drainage improvements in lower Corte Madera Creek within Larkspur are in the early planning phase.

Overseen by the Marin County Department of Public Works, the flood protection and watershed program is a team effort between the County, Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, and the municipalities of Fairfax, San Anselmo, Ross and Larkspur.
