Grant Confirmed for Potential San Anselmo Flood Control Project

Muddy flood waters in Corte Madera Creek get close to flood level near buildings in downtown San Anselmo.

State grant funds, originally targeted for projects within the Town of San Anselmo, will now likely be transferred to the Flood Control District pending environmental review approval.

If the transfer goes through, funds could be used for elements that fall outside of the San Anselmo town limits, namely the Sunnyside Nursery floodwater diversion basin located near Fairfax. Read the news release.
