Creek Levels, Creek Cams, Weather Information

In conjunction with the Ross Valley Fire Department, the towns of Ross, San Anselmo, and Fairfax have installed and implemented creek level monitoring systems and weather stations.  New for winter 2014/15 are creek cameras monitoring Sleepy Hollow Creek (at Fire Station 20, 150 Butterfield Road) and Fairfax Creek (at Town Hall).  We post real-time data to our website for public informational use only.  During severe weather events, this page sees tremendous traffic.  Visit our Creek Levels and Weather page, or use the links in this newsletter to view the resources directly.
