Statement on Coyote Creek flooding resolution

June 08, 2019
Coyote Creek

The Santa Clara Valley Water District (Valley Water) is offering to resolve approximately 200 unrepresented claims filed with the district after the Coyote Creek flooding in February 2017.

This business decision was made in consideration of the district resources used to address these unrepresented claims, in addition to offering closure to the claimants and the community.

Valley Water plans to move forward with these resolutions by summer of this year.
