Russian River County Sanitation District - Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Russian River County Sanitation District Local Hazard Mitigation Plan was approved by FEMA on April 16, 2018. The approval of this plan ensures the Russian River County Sanitation District's continued eligibility for project grants under FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs, including the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program, and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program. All requests for funding, however, will be evaluated individually according to the specific eligibility, and other requirements of the particular program under which applications are submitted.
FEMA's approval of the Russian River County Sanitation District Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is for a period of five years. Prior to April 16, 2023, the Russian River County Sanitation District is required to review and revise its plan to reflect changes in development, progress in local mitigation efforts, and changes in priorities, and resubmit it for approval in order to continue to be eligible for mitigation project grant funding.
The Russian River County Sanitation District began operations in 1983 and serves 3,161 Equivalent Single-Family Dwellings within a 2,700-acre service area. The treatment plant has a design capacity of 710,000 gallons per day and treats wastewater to tertiary treatment levels and provides tertiary treated water for irrigation.
