A strong winter storm is expected to reach the Los Angeles County Region as early as Thursday evening, with significant rain expected in the post Fish Fire Burn Area through the weekend.

LA County Public Works staff will be going door-to-door and informing residents in the affected area of this operation.



Trucks will enter/leave Maddock Debris Basin at the corner of Sunnydale Drive and Westvale Road and follow the route shown on the attached map. The sediment will be taken to a disposal site located near Arrow Highway and Vincent Avenue in the City of Irwindale.


Trucks are scheduled to begin hauling sediment 24 HOURS A DAY on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, at 6:00 am and continue through February 16, 2017, at 6:00 pm (weather permitting). This emergency operation is to restore capacity in advance of the forecasted storm on February 17, 2017.
