It's rainy season and that means the best time to prepare for flooding is before the water drops start fall.
Prepare your sandbags by visiting Fire Station 1 (41825 Juniper Street, Murrieta, CA 92562) and 2 (40060 California Oaks Road, Murrieta, CA 92562).
Here are a few reminders on what to do when thunderstorms are occurring:
During storms, our City crews are busy making sure residents can function as smoothly as possible:
- Public Works crews clear debris off drain inlets throughout Murrieta
- Staff work to house homeless individuals and get them out of creeks and storm drains and keep them safe
- Kalmia Street is closed between 2nd Avenue and Hayes Avenue
- Crews clear the Cal Oaks retention basin low flow pipe, which is typically clogged by the local beavers
- Sand was delivered to Fire Stations 1 and 2 for sandbags and will be monitored for additional delivery of sand
- Flooded signs have been deployed throughout the city for areas that are known for flooding
- V-ditches are being monitored in the Tenaja Fire burn scar area, off Oak Bluff Lane, Calle Cipres and Mountainside Court
