This division provides routine maintenance, snow removal and storm recovery operations on County maintained roads. It also has the responsibility to issue permits for the use of the road right-of-way and inspect new roads before acceptance into the maintained system. To accomplish these functions, the division is divided in two regional maintenance sections (Valley/Mountain Region and Desert Region), an Administrative Support Unit, an Engineering Support Section.
They perform road maintenance and construction on roads in the County Maintained Road System (CMRS) and includes such work as debris removal, snow removal, and emergency traffic control during storms or emergencies; routine maintenance, such as pothole patching or other pavement repairs and grading dirt roads and shoulders of paved roads; construction projects, such as grading and paving new roads, overlaying and/or widening of existing roads; and construction of minor drainage improvements.
Flood Control Operations
The District has developed a very extensive system of facilities including dams, conservation basins, channels, and storm drains. The purpose of these facilities is to intercept and convey flood flows through and away from the major developed areas of the County. The District is only responsible for work in the District right of way. Many natural watercourses are on private property or property owned by US Forest Services, Bureau of Land Management or other Governmental agencies. The District does not maintain any of these watercourses.
Administrative Support Section
The Administrative Support Section provides Administration Services for all division functions and operates the department radio base station. It receives records, distributes customer requests for service and provides data entry for numerous recurring reports.
Permits/Operations Support Division
The Permits/Operations Support Division provides engineering support to the regional Transportation and Flood Control maintenance Sections and issues permits for work in Transportation and Flood Control right of way.
