UPDATE: Regarding the flooding occurring in the Cherry St/Armstrong Ave neighborhood. Per the City's Public Works Director Russ Thompson, high water level in the wetland east of Binford Rd, owned by the State, is the key constraint causing high water levels in Rush Creek. Caltrans will have their environmental staff review Rush Creek and advise their maintenance staff on how much vegetation clearance they can do. Currently, the City is in the process of renting a pump to attempt to bypass overgrown Caltrans drainage channel, and we will continue to monitor conditions and take appropriate actions. If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415.899.8246 and staff will respond to your questions on Monday. Please note: after-hours/weekend Public Works emergencies can be reported by calling the Novato Police Department's non-emergency # at 415.897.4361.
