Is Your Property Ready for the Rain?



September 8, 2022 - The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the mountains and desert that will go into effect from 8 am Friday to midnight Friday night.

The Flood Watch means excessive rainfall is in the forecast, which may lead to localized areas of flooding. Property owners should take every measure to prepare their properties with proper stormwater best management practices (BMPs). 

Below are some useful resources that the County of San Diego has developed to show what BMPs could help protect your property from this and future rain events.
