With El Nino and fierce winters storms coming, residents along Dry Creek may experience erosion that needs to be addressed. Please watch for the Dry Creek Citizens Group, who will be circulating a petition through neighborhoods bordering Dry Creek in order to gain support to apply for grants funding to help people address the erosion issues they may face. Households who sign will receive booklets that help educate about the creek system and what restoration efforts might provide.
The group will be partnering with the City of Winters to devise a plan for the entire creek system and to provide planting and structures that will prevent erosion behind houses. By signing the petitions, citizens will show their support for grant applications that will be able to be reviewed by the public before being submitted to funders. Previous grants have already addressed severe erosion issues shared by some creek owners.
If any one would like to see actual restoration sites or if you would be interested in helping with the petition effort, please contact Valerie Whitworth (530-795-2009).
