Each year, Valley Water sends residents and businesses in Santa Clara County's Special Flood Hazard Areas an Annual Floodplain Mailer. This mailer informs thousands of property owners and residents living near creeks and rivers who are at risk of flooding and explains how Valley Water works with communities to reduce flood risks. The flyer also provides tips to become flood ready. If you are unsure if you are in a flood zone, visit Valley Water's website. For questions about this mailer or our flood protection and stream management programs, contact John Bourgeois, Deputy Operating Officer, Watershed Stewardship & Planning Division at (408) 630-2990.
