el niño preparation

According to the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there is 95% chance that El Niño will occur through the winter of 2015-2016.  Residents should expect unusual weather patterns and strong rainfall.  The information below is provided to help residents, visitors, and businesses in Jurupa Valley prepare for the anticipated unusual weather.

What is El Niño?

El Niño is a prolonged weather event characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures and increased rainfall.  The weather event is expected to result in significant rainfall events throughout California and other coastal regions during the winter of 2015-2016.

What is the City of Jurupa Valley doing to prepare?

In anticipation of increased rainfall, city staff has been working to identify and address drainage concerns throughout the area.  Mitigating draining problems often requires pavement repair, asphalt pavement berm repair, the creation of earth swales adjacent to roadways, modifying storm drains, etc.  City staff have also been canvassing the area to identify potential drainage concerns at existing draining facilities (ie: under street culverts) and cleaning debris to maintain stormwater flow.

What can I do do to prepare?

Residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to thoroughly prepare for increased rainfall.  Please refer to this tip sheet to find out what you can do to better prepare for the El Niño event and address drainage and stormwater problems long-term.
