Montecito Creek debris basin following the November 29 rainfall event. The basin is located on Montecito Creek just east of Olive Mill Road and south of Casa Dorinda. Flood Control reports that the basins performed as they expected, and did not overflow.

Santa Barbara County Flood Control reps report that Montecito debris basins performed nicely during the most recent winter storms in late November. Flood Control cleaned approximately 3,100 cubic yards of material from the Cold Springs debris basin, and about the same amount from the San Ysidro Creek debris basin, resulting from the late November rainfall event.
