The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities will soon begin maintenance work along critical infrastructure in the City’s flood control system.
This maintenance will be similar to the critical infrastructure work the City performs throughout the year and is expected to take several weeks to complete.
Work will soon be performed at Elder, Florin and Morrison creeks, Winters Ditch, and the Sacramento River, from downtown to Sutterville Road.
“The work performed will include repairing a major levee, removing debris that can cause localized flooding, removing debris blocking service roads, repairing fencing and ditches as well as inspecting banks,” said City Utilities Director, Bill Busath.
Utilities staff are working closely with the City Manager’s Office, City Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Community Response to ensure the safety and well-being of City staff and those camping in impacted areas.
The Department of Community Response will be coordinating with local service providers to perform outreach and connect people with services.
“Maintaining critical infrastructure, like levees and bridges, is vital to all residents of Sacramento,” said Nick Golling, manager of homeless services for the City’s Department of Community Response. “DCR will be working with anyone experiencing homelessness near these jobsites to explore safe placement while the work is being completed.”
Here is a schedule of when work will be performed:
