FBCLID 2 operators remain onsite and prepared to respond to flood or drainage emergencies during the COVID-19 outbreak. The FBCLID 2 pump station, levees, and ditches continue to be routinely maintained and inspected. Because these facilities provide crucial protection to the community, all operations personnel are considered essential workers. The District’s emergency planning and operations over the past several years have resulted in cross training a large number of inspectors and operators. FBCLID 2 has also invested in communication and network technology to operate and monitor all facilities remotely with limited in-person interaction. The FBCLID Board of Directors has adopted emergency meeting procedures to provide business continuity for the District during the COVID-19 outbreak. The March 18 meeting of the Board of Directors continued as scheduled, via teleconference. Details about future public meetings will continue to be posted online at www.fbclid2.com .
FBCLID 2 recently launched a new Emergency Operations webpage that includes many resources available to all FBCLID 2 residents.
