Another phase of critical infrastructure maintenance will soon begin

The 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 has performed in past years and is expected to take several weeks to complete.

Work will soon be performed at Upper Morrison, Lower Morrison and Strawberry creeks, ditches near the Sacramento Northern Bike Trail and Winters Street, and a detention basin located in North Natomas.

The work performed will include vegetation management, repairing fencing, and removing debris that can cause localized flooding as well as block service roads and locked access gates.

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.

“Resources and support will be provided to the most vulnerable members of our community while our partners in the Department of Utilities make sure our critical infrastructure receives the maintenance that it needs,” said City Homeless Services Manager Nick Golling. “The Department of Community Response will be reaching out to those experiencing homelessness, providing referral and connection to safe and stable programs in the community.”

The Department of Community Response will be coordinating with local service providers to perform outreach and connect people with services.

Below is a schedule of work locations and notification dates.
