Town Of Moraga

El Nino Storm Preparedness Update

The Town of Moraga lies within the Moraga Creek Watershed, which includes three major creeks: Moraga Creek, Laguna Creek, and Rimer Creek. The creeks and drainage channels are susceptible to flooding with the potential to cause property damage. The Town has notified owners of all properties adjacent to Town creeks of their responsibility to maintain their sections of creeks to prevent flooding. Certain areas within the Town are designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as 100-year flood zones, which refers to a high risk area with a one percent chance of being flooded in any given year. Residents located in flood-prone areas are encouraged to have materials, such as sandbags and plastic sheeting, available to protect property during the rainy season. The Town has provided three cubic yards of self-serve sand and bags behind Fire Station 41 (1280 Moraga Way) for Moragans. Please take only what you need and fill bags one-third full for recommended stacking. Visit FEMA’s website for flood zone designations.
