MCDD reduces flood risk by maintaining our levee system, managing drainage and responding to emergencies. As part of these responsibilities, MCDD reviews development applications for projects within the Districts’ boundaries. These reviews ensure new development does not detrimentally impact the management or maintenance of the federally authorized levee or interior drainage system we operate.
The Districts can set up a free pre-application meeting to help identify potential mitigation needs early and explain submittal requirements for complex projects. Contact Flood Control Director Bill Owen at 503.281.5675 ext. 321 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a free pre-application meeting.
