March 13, 2024 (San Diego East County) – County supervisors approved continuing emergency repairs to storm drains in several unincorporated communities at a Flood Control District meeting today after a catastrophic flood overflowed the county's storm drains on January 22.

Emergency repairs approved Feb. 28 include two projects already completed, at Ildica Court in Spring Valley and Dogwood Lane in Hidden Meadows. Today, regulators approved that emergency drainage work continues to be required at these additional locations:

  • 1243 & 1247 Purdy Street, Spring Valley
  • 9602 Casa de la Torre Court, Casa de Oro
  • 3150 Rio Way, Spring Valley
  • 4362 & 4368 Edgewood Court, Casa de Oro
  • 8575 Los Coches Road, Lakeside
  • 2544 Buena Flores, Fallbrook

The permit authorizes repair or replacement of damaged stormwater drains, removal of blockages and debris, and emergency repair of sinkholes.

Total repairs are estimated to cost more than $5.3 million and will be funded from existing Flood Control District Fund balances.
