A major storm would cause serious flooding here and threaten nearby homes. Flood Control enginers ore studying o diversion project to swing the Zanja flow northward to the Santa Ana River. The diversion may take place in this area. (Daily Facts photo) Chan :e course of Zanja Flood control engineers study Crafton Hills runoff HISTORIC DITCH — The rock-walled Zanja irrigation ditch flows through an orange grove ond slides under a culvert ot King street in the Crafton area. This shallow, weed-choked stream is the mojor droinage for the area east of Redlands. Future residential development in Crafton Hills will increase the flood danger along the Zanja ond to Redlands downstream. (Daily Facts photo) Changing the course of slorm waters draining into Eedlands from the Crafton Hills will be given serious thought by Coun ty Flood Control engineers this year. The diversion would shift the historic Zanja irrigation ditch northward to the Santa Ana Biv er at a point somewhere east of Judson street. A feasibility study for turning the Zanja away from central Hedlands was auttiorized by the Zone 3 Flood Control Advisory Bpart^ on Fri day at the urging of city offi^ cials. At present, the Zanja flows from the mouth of Mill Creek westerly through Crafton and east Redlands, borders Sylvan boulevard in the city, goes underground in the downtown dis trict continues west through the Mission district and converges with the Santa Ana near Waterman avenue. "This project affects our Downtow-n Kedevelopment program (701 Study) because wc must know how much water we can expect from the Zanja. "If it is shown that the Zanja can be diverted, we won't have to acquire flood control right-of- way through the city." explained public Works director John Shone.

Vine St. — Redlands PY 2-9022 County Flood Control engineer .Art Sidler declared that the major flood threat from the Zanja was climioatcd in 1960 with the completion of the Mill Creek levee east of Mentone by t h c U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. He confirmed, however, that continued residential develop ment cast of Redlands and in the Crafton area is again increasing the flood hazard alon the Zqnja. The Zone 3 Advisory Board budgeted $3,500 to get the study started in 1964-65. A portion of the money will be used for aerial mapping of the area iwund- ed by the Zanja, Judson street, the Santa Ana River and Wabash avenue. The balance of tlie funds will be used for engineering a route for the diversion. Sidler observed that the Judson street are offers the most likely route for two reasons: (1) Residential development is hght in the area and the necessary right-of-way could be acquired with the least difficulty; (2j The diversion would 1 Rolands be far enough west to receive' the greatest amount o£ slorm drainage flowing toward Red lands from the east. Another phase ot the Zanja diversion, according to Sidler. would require the deepening and widening of the existing drain age channel upstream to its con fluence with Slill Creek cast of Greenspot. Sidler explained that a ditch large enough to contain the anticipated runoff from the Zanja drainage would be a concrete lined channel at least 20 feet wide and about 6 feet deep. The existing Zqnja has n o t been maintained for many years and is now choked with brush and sand. At some points along Sylvan boulevard the channel is ciled to street level with mud At other points, private brid- gcs and even some homes obstruct the flow of the drainag(> ditch. The Flood Control district will probably be forced to pur chase every foot of the right of-way needed to rebuild and maintain the Zanja. "Our experience in improv' ing the Mission storm drain west of Redlands has been that no one is willing to give us the right-of-way. We've had to purchase every foot," Sidler noted If a major storm were to hil tomorrow, homes built along the Zanja would be flooded. The danger to downtown Redlands increases with every subdivision constructed on land that is drained by the Zanja-(Flat non- absorbant surfaces increase runoff). By diverting the Zanja away from downtown, the Flood Control district hopes to virtually eliminate the flood threat to WtST COAST THtATlf • 121 Cojon SlTM) • Pr. 3.4331 I Wed.

DOWNSTREAM IMPROVEMENT - Flood control work west of Redlonds hos resulted in the widening fo obout 60 feet of the Mission Storm Drain into which the Zanja flows west of town. This is the Mission channel of Nevada street, looking east toward Redlands. A eon- crete-lined channel about 20 feet wide may be necessary to contain the Zon{a east of town. (Daily Facts photo) An effort to attract new industry to the Redlands area will be made Wednesday by the Redlands Industrial Development Council which will host 12 leading industrial developers from the Los Angeles area. The group will participate in an all-day program to acquaint them with the advantages the city has to offer industry. Dr. George Armacost, presi dent of the University of Bed lands, will address the group at a breakfast at the University Commons. Folloning this, a. visit will be made to Universal Rundle, Big Bear Timber and finally to the Lockheed Propul sion Company. Here, Robert Hurt, president of the company, will describe its operations.

Scandal in Urban Renewal Editor Facts: Before the Urban Renewal conclusions of Study 701 come out and before that wonderful merger of the Federal government and business takes place, it might be well for every cit izea in Redlands to read U.S. Representative John Dowdy's article, "The Mounting Scandal of Urban Renewal" in the March Reader's Digest. Is this what we want for Redlands? Concerned citizen. Editor's Note: The 701 Study conclusions have n 01 been formed. They might, and they might not, include proposals for an Urban Renewal project. Redlands does not presently have a Redevelopment Agency. Praise for Law Enforcement Agencies Editor Facts: Many times we read of a law enforcement agency showing a disregard of the human qualities involved in any poUce call. I learned Saturday that this does not apply to this area. Our son disappeared for a time, and I was reminded of several things that do not ordinarily come to mind. The sympathetic concern shown for me, as well as David, will never be forgotten. The immediate cooperation between the Redlands department and the Sheriff's office is certainly comforting. The lectmre that the Deputy Sheriff gave David was far more effective than anything we might have said. Once again we know how fortunate we are to live in a country and a community where the individual comes first. My sincere thanks to the Redlands Police Department, and the San Bemardmo County Sheriffs Office. Barbara F. Lagerquist 2054 Salerno avenue Mentone.
