The County of San Luis Obispo proactively prepared for expected El Niño storms for winter 2015-2016. The projections for a potentially wet and stormy winter had the entire community attuned to the need to prepare early.
The Office of Emergency Services (OES) worked on developing an Adverse Weather Plan as a reference for emergency managers on what actions to initially take related to serious storms, storm warnings, flooding conditions and other situations, such as evacuation needs. OES is also updating the Dam and Levee Plan and will be working with County Public Works to train first responders on any issues that could arise with the Arroyo Grande Creek Levee.
