Flood Damage

Over a three-hour period on Monday, January 22, 2024, three inches of rain fell in parts of Spring Valley, La Presa, and Casa de Oro. 

2024-03-01: The County of San Diego Department of Public Works (DPW) is continuing to support debris pick up from the recent flooding in January. The last day for curbside pick-up is Friday, March 8th. Crews will be working throughout impacted areas through March 8th supporting unincorporated area residents who are removing flood-damaged items from their homes, such as damaged furniture, flooring, drywall, and appliances.

Beginning March 9th – 23rd, collection bins will be available at the Spring Valley Library from 7am – 4pm for self-disposal of flood damaged debris. The site is closed on Sundays.

Items for curbside pick-up should be outside and accessible to crews from the roadway. Unfortunately, we cannot enter into yards or homes, or onto private property to remove debris. Please do not block gutters or storm drains when setting out your items.

If you live in the unincorporated area and have debris that is ready for disposal and it has not been picked up, please let us know by calling: (858) 495-5700.

If you have electronics, chemicals, paint or other household hazardous materials (HHW), please separate these items from other debris and ensure that they are covered/contained and call (858) 495-5700 for collection.

Non-flood related items will not be picked up including trash, tires, vegetation or outdoor furniture or play equipment.

For general information and questions, please call 211 and visit AlertSanDiego.org for resources.
