Hazard Mitigation

A countrywide Hazard Mitigation Plan was developed that includes maps for flood zones, dam inundation areas and earthquake faults. The City also has recently updated its Emergency Operations Plan that describes in detail how the City prepares, responds, and recovers from a variety of emergency incidents. 

Dam Inundation Map

The State Department of Water Resources reviews and approves inundation maps prepared by licensed civil engineers.  These maps are used to assist the City and County in planning and responding to a dam breach. To learn more, please click here.
