Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The previous plan was approved by FEMA on September 13, 2016 for a period of five years. The approval of the updated plan ensures the Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District's continued eligibility for project grants under FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program.
Every five years the 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.
Public Comment Deadline: November 21, 2021
The District is asking for comment on the plan until November 21, 2021. Your comments will be reviewed by the Hazard Mitigation Planning Team and incorporated into the final plan as appropriate. Please send your comments to: LHMP@scwa.ca.gov or by postal mail to Sonoma County Water Agency, C/O Mollie Asay, 404 Aviation Blvd., Santa Rosa, CA 95403.
