Keep creeks clean and flowing. Trash and debris in creeks can block the flow of water and cause flooding. Help us keep creeks flowing by reporting downed trees, blockages or illegal dumping.
Report issues in creeks to Valley Water’s Watershed Hotline: 408-630-2378

Local street flooding
Yard waste, leaves, and soil can also obstruct storm drains and prevent stormwater from being properly drained, causing local street flooding. Cities maintain storm drain systems including gutters, drains, and pipes in the street. To report a spill, dumping, or blockage in storm drains, contact your city public works department according to the list below. For information on flood risks, interpreting FEMA flood maps, flood insurance, or elevation certificates, contact your city's floodplain manager.
