North Bay storms rack up repair bills

Published Tuesday March 14

Marin, Napa, Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma and Solano are among nearly all CA counties seeking federal and state reimbursement for repairs this season that could run $600 million-$1 billion statewide.

On Jan. 23 and March seven Governor Brown issued emergency declarations because of the Jan and Feb storm work, particularly for the Oroville Dam.

The Hwy 37 flooding happened from a confluence of factors. It is in an area where 4 waterways converge to flow into San Pablo Bay, and there’s a bottleneck for Novato Creek as it runs under the roadway. A system of levees managed by public agencies and private landowners is designed to let water flow into surrounding fields.
