Heavy rainfall and flooding that occurred in late February have impacted our community in numerous ways. If you were impacted, please review the following information on potential resources, or pass it along to anyone you know who may need such assistance.
Data Collection and Assistance
The Gold Ridge and Sonoma Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) are working with the County of Sonoma to document damage to private properties (both residential and commercial) that were affected by streambank erosion and slope failure triggered by the February 2019 storm event. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) may be able to provide technical advice and/or financial assistance for landowners to address these impacts if they are determined to be a threat to life or property. Documentation of damage is the first necessary step. The RCDs are collecting initial documentation of property damage from landowners and submitting it to NRCS who will assess whether they may be able to assist. NRCS will then conduct site visits with RCD staff.
How to Document Damage on Your Property
If your property has been impacted by storm-related erosion or slope failure that threaten life or property, please complete the form below and send photos before April 5th, 2019.
If you are not sure which RCD area covers your property, you may contact either one and we will make sure your information gets to the right place!
Need further information? Just call our offices to speak with the program manager.
