Stormy Weather Means Being Ready for Runoff

Stormwater Runoff

Heavy storm days inevitably lead to stormwater runoff from our hills and mountains, and we continue to prepare for it.

Thank you for being our eyes and ears during the recent storms. Information provided by our Kiika’ neighbors allows our on-site response team to quickly address any issues caused by the rain. As standard practice, all San Manuel projects, including work on the East Reservation Residential Home Project, have stormwater management best practices in place to meet rainy conditions.

San Manuel and the City of San Bernardino have worked to clean the streets and clear storm drains in the impacted areas. Moving forward, we encourage local residents to be aware of the condition of nearby storm drains, channels and culverts. Whether these basins and channels are on residential property or city owned land, it is important to keep them clear and report to the owner when they are not.

In addition, where feasible and appropriate, San Manuel offers assistance to neighbors to address storm-related impacts and to assist in clearing storm drains, channels and culverts.

We have a stormwater retention management system in place on the Reservation. To provide even more protection from runoff to nearby off-reservation homes, the East Reservation development has been designed to include four new retention basins.


Next Up: Resurfacing East Citrus Street and Adjacent Cul-de-sacs

Citrus Street

As an extension of the Victoria Avenue Improvement Project, planning is underway to repave side streets east of Victoria Avenue.

This is part of the City of San Bernardino’s Victoria Improvements Project funded by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and managed by the City of San Bernardino Public Works department.

The repavement project includes East Citrus Avenue (between Bangor to Victoria), adjoining cul-de-sacs, Bangor Avenue and Central Avenue. Neighbors might notice a geo-technical crew taking core samples from the street to assess street conditions as crews prepare for the repair work. We will share a 2019 start date and work schedule once plans are finalized.

Victoria Avenue Makeover

Crews completed the City of San Bernardino’s Victoria Avenue Improvement Project this past December. Thanks to all of our neighbors for their patience during the street work. Here is a look at the finished work on Victoria Avenue, which includes a resurfaced road and repaired sound walls.

Missing a Pet? Check with our Animal Control Unit

Has your pet gone missing? You might want to check with the San Manuel Department of Public Safety (DPS) to see if your animal wandered onto the Reservation.

Stray animals found roaming on the Reservation are held at the DPS Animal Control for approximately 15 days. Owners of the animal can claim the animal with proof of ownership. Animals not claimed within the first 14 days of impoundment will be eligible for adoption for an additional 14 days.

If any animals in your area have run off, we encourage you to call our DPS Animal Control at (909) 863-5890. Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
