Prepare for Winter and El Niño 2015/2016

The El Niño storms are estimated to be their strongest in years. The City of Santa Rosa is getting prepared and we hope you will too. In preparation for wet weather and the possibility of heavy rains, the following are some of the actions the City of Santa Rosa has taken: 

  • Additional training for City employees that would be staffing the City’s Emergency Operation Center (if needed), has been provided.
  • Development of a “communications plan” that will provide up-to-date information to our community in the event of a significant winter storm (road closures, transit delays, power outages, non-emergency numbers, etc.).
  • Trees around the City including our parks, street medians and parking lots, have been trimmed back.
  • Overgrowth from creek areas within parks has been cleared.
  • Storm drains in and around the City, including our parks, public parking lots and garages, have been cleared.
  • Spillways at the dam at Fountaingrove Lake and in Nagasawa Community Park have been cleared. Water spillway at the dam at Howarth Park's Lake Ralphine has been improved.
  • All of the gutters on the City buildings have been cleared and the roofs have been cleaned.
  • Batteries in flashlights in maintenance sheds and City buildings have been checked and changed. Trucks have been stocked with hazardous weather safety supplies. 
  • Critical water, sewer, and wastewater treatment infrastructure have been secured. Key sewer mains, drainage systems, and emergency equipment (e.g. generators and pumps) have been cleaned, inspected and are ready.

Have you taken steps to be prepared?:

  • Clear drains, rain gutters and downspouts of debris.
  • Trim trees and landscaping as needed to ensure that branches and limbs are clear of your structure and clear from overhead power lines (Contact PG&E if trees have grown over or around power lines on your property). 
  • Inspect your roof for any signs of damage or needed repairs. Make arrangements for the repairs before water starts to leak inside your property.
  • Stabilize slopes on your property to prevent mud and landslides. 
  • Secure outdoor furniture and other loose items from causing damage during periods of heavy winds.
  • Have a plan for being without power.
