Oct. 20 public workshop to target areas that flood

Residents who experience flooding on their properties during wet weather are encouraged to attend a public workshop on flooding, hosted by the Ramona Community Planning Group at 7 p.m. on Oct. 20.

The workshop will be held in Ramona Community Center, 434 Aqua Lane.

Members of the planning group and staff from San Diego County’s flood control department will be on hand to identify and prioritize the areas that flood.

“We’re going to formulate information and come up with a priority list for the county to address flooding areas,” said Ramona Community Planning Group Chair Jim Piva.

The idea for the workshop came after residents from the Kelly and Letton Street area complained of routine flooding during rains while county staff sought approval for a drainage project in an area that the planning group had not identified as having flooding problems.

“They were fixing problems without even knowing what flooded and what didn’t flood,” Piva said of the county.

Piva added that County Supervisor Dianne Jacob pushed for the workshop. Jacob met with residents from the Kelly and Letton Street area earlier this year.
