Flood Risk Projects To Continue in Riv. County

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors has authorized the Riverside County Flood Control & Water Conservation District to continue a series of projects intended to protect communities around Lake Elsinore and the Temescal Valley at risk of flooding, mud and debris flows because of last summer's massive wildfire in the Cleveland National Forest. District Manager Jason Uhley has been submitting requests to continue the emergency projects every month.

Despite the onset of summer and no damaging storms in the western county area since the end of winter ... Uhley said in documents posted to the board's agenda that the contractors' work needs to go on. He said ``critical public infrastructure'' remains vulnerable, with some flood control facilities still loaded with mud and debris that must be cleared before another large-scale storm series pounds the region.
