Prepare for Spring Run-Off NOW!

“County Emergency Management recommends the public be prepared for spring runoff. If your home is by a ditch, canal, or creek, in a flood plain, or if you have experienced flooding before – buy sand and sandbags from our local hardware, home improvement, concrete supply, farm and ranch supply businesses. Get sandbags now!

Just like carrying insurance, defense of personal property against flooding is a homeowner’s responsibility. Should runoff be excessive, county sandbags will be used to protect critical infrastructure. Also, consult your local insurance agent to evaluate your flood insurance coverage.”

There is a difference between a no-notice event like a thunderstorm that delivers three inches of rain in a few hours and an expected event such as a healthy spring run-off. Please take the necessary precautions to prepare individual homes for water flowing toward the residence.
