There are four creeks that run through Los Altos, one of which you probably live near. These creeks are Adobe Creek, Hale Creek, Permanente Creek and Stevens Creek. In addition, there is the by-pass near Blach School which carries overflow from Permanente Creek to Stevens Creek. All of these creeks may subject your property to flooding during periods of heavy storms.
Flood zone information about your property is available by calling the Engineering Division at (650) 947-2780 or by viewing maps available at the main Los Altos library.
