SAN BERNARDINO CA – A project to improve the San Timoteo Canyon flood control system will begin soon. The storms from January through March 2010 left debris and sediment throughout the canyon’s flood prevention system.

The project will cost $4,448,000 and require moving approximately 550,000 cubic yards of material from the basin. The goal is to get the project done before the next set of storms and restore capacity of the flood control system.
