Important Note: These creek levels and other data are provided for information purposes only. Please refer to our Palo Alto Flood Information page for more details. If you live outside of Palo Alto/Stanford, you will need to go to the appropriate web page established for your community for further information.
Downed trees, drainage issues, and other storm-related issues can be reported via the appropriate phone number as listed on the Flood Information Page. The Flood Information Page lists other winter storm and emergency preparedness resources (including what you can do to stay informed, how to protect your property, and how to prepare in advance).
ATTENTION: The project to improve the speed and accuracy of the data on the Creek Monitor page has been completed. With the exception of the sensor on West Bayshore Road at San Francisquito Creek, all sensors are now functioning. With the arrival of each storm we will continue to monitor the creek levels and verify the accuracy of the information that we receive.
The City's project to connect the sensor on San Francisquito Creek at West Bayshore is under way. We expect the sensor to be functioning by before fall. However, and as we've done in the past, we installed a camera near West Bayshore Road to view current stream conditions.
We appreciate your patience while we complete these projects. In the event of potential rain, staff will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed. Please contact our central dispatch center at (650) 329-2413 (24 hours a day) to report any flooding issues.
