LA County Public Works: Sediment Hauling & Flood Control Maintenance Activities at Dunsmuir Sediment Placement Site and Verdugo Debris Basin

September 3, 2019

Dunsmuir Sediment Placement Site

 

 

MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES
To safeguard lives and property during this period of increased mudflow risk for local burn areas, Los Angeles County Public Works is conducting critical clean-out operations at debris basins in the North San Fernando Valley. Material removed from these facilities is being trucked to the County’s regional Dunsmuir Sediment Placement Site in the Glendale area.

 

HOW LONG WILL THE WORK LAST?
The current high-priority operation is expected to begin mid-August and will last approximately 3 months. Additional maintenance and clean-out activities may be necessary depending on the severity off future storms up through April 2020, the end of the current storm season.


DATE/TIME
County crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays as needed, during the storm season.
