Temescal Canyon Road becomes a muddy, flooded and dangerous roadway after a heavy rain.

Temescal Canyon Road becomes a muddy, flooded and dangerous roadway after a heavy rain.

Area residents who have lived here for any length of time know Temescal Valley is subject to flooding during particularly heavy rains. (Need a reminder? HERE is a photo gallery of runoff and flooding during the storm early last month.)

The Valley is located within Zone 2 of the Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, the agency responsible for deciding how flood control funds will be used. Also included in Zone 2 are the cities of Corona, Norco and Eastvale.

Zone 2 commissioners will hold a work session at 2 p.m. Monday, April 14 to discuss the budgeting of projects for the 2014-15 fiscal year.

The workshop will be at 5464 West Homecoming Circle in Eastvale and is open to the public.

 

PHOTOS: Wet, wild and welcomed

Here are a few photos we shot Saturday on a Temescal Valley tour to assess storm damage. Thankfully, we found the Valley pretty much intact, if not a little wetter than usual. Did you take photos? You can share them here. Email pictures to WeAreTV.org@gmail.com. There’s no need to include your name unless you don’t mind us using it, but a description of the photo and the location would be helpful.
