Flooding Relief Resource Fair For Property Owners This Weekend

Construction
The Wells Fargo located at the intersection of Ocean and Brighton avenues underwent construction to prevent stormwater flooding in February 2020.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission will hold a Resource Fair in Ingleside this Saturday to inform the community about floodwater grants and flood insurance.

Many Ingleside residents may have noticed that the Wells Fargo on Ocean Avenue at Brighton has been closed for serious construction. The reason: stormwater flooding prevention.

When it rains, a number of commercial buildings on the avenue as well as sections of residential neighborhoods, such as Ingleside Terraces and Mission Terrace, suffer from floodwater rising out of the city’s combined stormwater and sewage system.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission will hold a Resource Fair in Ingleside this Saturday to inform the community about floodwater grants and flood insurance.

Rev. Roland Gordon, who is hosting the fair at Ingleside Presbyterian Church, requested that the event be organized after personally dealing with the flooding of the church’s basement most recently in December.

“Whoever’s got problems with flooding, we’ll have the resource people here,” Rev. Gordon told The Light, adding that he was pleased to discuss solutions for a common problem in the neighborhood.

Floodwater grants, up to $100,000, will be available to residential and commercial property owners who have been negatively impacted by flooding. SFPUC staff will be on hand to explain the programs and advise on available resources.
