During the next several months, Saddle Creek CSD will be increasing Mosquito abatement activities due to warmer temperatures and increasing mosquito populations.
Work will include inspections of known and suspect mosquito breeding sites, such as irrigated lands, ditches, waterways, ponds, and wetlands. Mosquitoes will be controlled using integrated pest management techniques (IPM), including: applications of approved use pesticides to breeding sites and areas of high adult mosquito populations, mosquito eating fish in ponds and public education efforts. Additionally, the CSD will be increasing surveillance in attempt to detect mosquito-transmitted diseases, such as West Nile Virus, Western Equine Encephalitis, Zika and other vector borne diseases.
In most cases, spraying of approved pesticides will occur on Thursdays during the late afternoon or early evening hours. While the spraying activity does not present a health risk to residents, there will be noticeable odor. To minimize this problem, windows and doors should remain closed while the activity is occurring near your area and should remain closed for approximately 30 minutes after it is completed.
Residents are asked to assist in our abatement efforts by eliminating mosquito-breeding sites on their property and by reporting abnormal mosquito population to the CSD Maintenance Manager Greg Hebard:

2018 was an absolutely wonderful year in Saddle Creek with the completion of the first road renovation project; completed with your Measure A dollars. The CSD has also set up a reserve fund to replace critical equipment, and a reserve fund for ongoing future road improvements. This would not have been possible without the hard work of the CSD Board of Directors and the SUPPORT of the voters within the CSD that approved Measure A. You can rest assured that the condition of Saddle Creek roads will always hold at a level that will have a positive impact on public safety and property values in the community.
2019 starts off a solid meeting agenda with incoming Board President Darlene DeBaldo at the helm (with the gavel?). We will be discussing policies that affect the future development of properties that may seek services provided by your CSD. We look forward to your input, see you there. The complete agenda packet can be downloaded here.
Good evening and Happy Weekend! We hope that your upcoming holidays are cheerful and plenty! The December 18, 2018 Regular Board Meeting Agenda and December 18, 2018 Regular Board Meeting Agenda Packet for next Tuesday’s Regular Board meeting have now been posted on the CSD website.

A special meeting of the CSD Board has been scheduled to begin at the conclusion of the regular meeting tomorrow afternoon (November 20, 2018). The special meeting will deal with issues and recommendations regarding the development of additional traffic circulation routes to the area, to increase entrance and exit routes in the region. This issue is extremely important when you consider the limited number of current evacuation routes in the event of a fire emergency such as those currently occurring in the state.
The CSD Board will be considering a recommendation to the County Board of Supervisors. We look forward to your participation and input. The Agenda and supporting materials can be found on our website:
