NOTICE OF COMMUNITY WORKSHOP FOR THE PREPARATION OF

THE VALLEY OF THE MOON WATER DISTRICT’S LOCAL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN

 

The Valley of the Moon Water District (District) has launched a planning effort to assess risks from natural, human-health, and human-caused hazards and to identify ways to reduce those risks. The planning process will result in the preparation of the District’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The preparation of an LHMP is required under the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 to be eligible to receive federal disaster assistance and funding.

 

The District’s water supply facilities and infrastructure in Sonoma Valley are vulnerable to a wide range of natural hazards, including drought, earthquakes, flooding, landslides, severe weather, and wildfires. The District may also be exposed to pandemics and cyber threats. The LHMP will provide the District with valuable tools to identify risks and mitigate hazards through future project-specific actions. The LHMP will also assess the effects of climate change on natural hazards assessed in the plan and will incorporate climate adaptation strategies.

 

The District will host a Community Workshop on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The Community Workshop will be an opportunity to learn more about the planning process and the natural, human-health, and human-caused hazards that will be assessed in the LHMP. The community is encouraged to participate in the planning process by providing feedback during the virtual Community Workshop, completing an Online Survey, visiting the District’s LHMP webpage, and reviewing the Draft LHMP (once available).
