Virtual meeting to be held on Rock Creek flood study

CHICO — Butte County Public Works and the California Department of Water Resources will be hosting an online community meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday to discuss the recent Rock Creek flood study.

Flooding has historically been an issue in the area of Rock Creek with water pooling into the roadway and onto properties on days of heavy rainfall.

The meeting is meant to share the study as well as look at possible solutions to flooding at the Rock Creek and Keefer Slough Watershed. Background information will be provided by Public Works staff as well as project goals, said a flyer by the department issued Tuesday.

“The meeting will also be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about this project,” the flyer reads.

Attendees will be asked to share their opinions regarding project concerns, safety measures they have taken when flooding occurs and what improvements they would like to see.

The meeting can be found at www.buttecounty.net/publicworks/Flood_water_project. Those hoping to comment or ask questions can email at jhankins@buttecounty.net or submit them directly at the meeting link.

In addition to the virtual meeting, an in-person meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Nov. 18 with the same content at Nord Country School.
