What does the Flood District do to prevent flooding?

The District undertakes preventative measures throughout the County to reduce the risk of flood damage to property and loss of life. This includes regular maintenance of stream channels in urban reaches of the County to maintain flow conveyance as well as the monitoring and operation of the Napa River Flood Protection Project during forecast high water events. Flood District staff monitors flood control facilities and the County stream and precipitation gage network during severe weather events to provide information to emergency personnel about flooding potential. In a flood event, City and County emergency services coordinate flood response activities and are the primary sources for flood related information and support.
